Battleship is incorporating an "alien invasion element" to what has been mainly seen as a regular Naval game.
Jon and Erich Hoeber wrote the screenplay. It follows an international fleet that comes together to fight a water-bound armada of otherworldly origin.
In Battleship, Kitsch will play a Naval commander named Alex Hopper. He is described as "wildly spirited" and "a great seaman but a lousy politician."
