Today, Universal returns fire with the news that Liam Neeson has joined the cast of Battleship, bringing in some veteran leadership as both an actor and with his character in the film.

Neeson will play Admiral Shane of the USS John Paul Jones and if you’re wondering how all of the other characters fit together, they more than just serve together on the same ship; Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) plays Hopper, an officer engaged to Brooklyn Decker’s character, Sam, who happens to be the daughter of Admiral Shane. It’s a Naval family!

If that’s not all, Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) is Hopper’s older brother but he commands another ship, the USS Samson, for which Rihanna’s character Lt. Raikes also serves as a weapons specialist.

As for the story of the Battleship movie, very loosely based on the board game, if at all, the movie will follow human Naval forces as they encounter alien spaceships landed in our ocean. The aliens are stuck with a damaged vessel and alien-human naval warfare ensues. Battleship is directed by Peter Berg (Hancock) and will hit theaters May 18, 2012.
