Seasoned veteran actor Liam Neeson has joined the cast of Battleship, the movie based on the popular board game of the same name that sees players calling out locations in hopes of striking and sinking their opponents strategically placed fleet.

Neeson will play a Naval officer named Admiral Shane, whose daughter (played by model Brooklyn Decker) is engaged to a young officer played by lead Taylor Kitsch (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, John Carter of Mars). Also starring in the film is Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd (True Blood, Zoolander), who will play Kitsch’s brother, and pop star Rihanna.

The movie is directed by Peter Berg, who also brought us The Rundown and The Kingdom. It will tell the story of a naval fleet who finds themselves having to deal with an invading alien race who plans to mine Earth of its resources for their own use.

Battleship just started filming this week in Hawaii with plans currently set for a release on June 18, 2012.

The screenplay is written by Whiteout and Red scribes Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber.
