Actress Kristen Wiig will also join him in the movie.
Alexander Skarsgard and Kristen Wiig have joined the cast of The Diary Of A Teenage Girl, alongside new lead Bel Powley.
What would you do if you ended up in a relationship with your mother’s boyfriend? That’s the dilemma in front of Powley in the movie.
The film is based on a graphic novel by controversial and accomplished illustrator Phoebe Gloekner (rather than on Melody Carson’s series of Christian stories) and is set in the 1970s.
With Powley set to fill the role of the novel’s 15-year-old Minnie Goetze, there’ll be no surprises should Wiig be confirmed as Minnie’s mother, and Skarsgard the boyfriend that Minnie ends up sleeping with.
The film is both adapted and directed by Marielle Heller, an experienced screenwriter who is married to Saturday Night Live and The Lonely Island member Jorma Taccone.
Primarily known as a British stage actress with experience in West End and Broadway shows, Powley will be flanked by Wiig of Bridesmaids and The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, as well as True Blood and Generation Kill star Skarsgard. — AFP Relaxnews
