Los Angeles, Oct 17 (PTI) 'Vikings' star Alexander Ludwig is on board 'Swing', the Ivy League rowing drama, featuring Michael Shannon.

According to Deadline, the film revolves around a group of friends and crew teammates in their final year at an Ivy League college in 1999.

Their lives take a turn when an Army veteran assumes the position of the coach of their dysfunctional team.

Ludwig will play Alex Singleton, the 'cocky and arrogant' team leader with a mean streak who aspires to make the Olympic rowing team.
