Stellan Skarsgard's son, the younger brother of fellow actors Alexander and Bill Skarsgard, will play a young man battling a vengeful entity taking control of bodies and minds.

Valter Skarsgard has nabbed the lead role in the supernatural thriller Don't Click from director G-Hey Kim and producer Vortex Words + Pictures.

The son of Stellan Skarsgard and younger brother of fellow actors Alexander and Bill Skarsgard earlier starred in the Swedish feature Lords of Chaos, director Jonas Akerlund’s biopic about the notorious Norwegian black metal band Mayhem, as well as in the Swedish TV drama Black Lake.

Don't Click, which will shoot in Hamilton, Ontario, in May and is penned by Courtney McAllister, also stars Mark Koufos and Catherine Howard.

Skarsgard will play Josh, who discovers his college roommate (Koufos) is missing and has left behind a laptop with a screen flashing on a graphic pornography site that knocks him unconscious. When Josh eventually wakes, he finds himself next to his roommate in a dank, surreal cellar and must save his friend and himself from a vengeful entity that begins to take control of their bodies and minds.

Don’t Click is produced by Bill Marks and executive produced by George Mihalka, Christopher Giroux and McAllister.

Valter Skarsgard is repped by Paradigm Talent Agency and Stockholm-based Agentfirman.
