Viggo Mortensen Circling Peter Farrelly’s Next Film ‘Green Book’

Following his Oscar nomination for “Captain Fantastic,” Viggo Mortensen may have found his next role.

Mortsensen is in talks to star in Peter Farrelly’s next pic “Green Book.” Farrelly will direct from a script he co-wrote with Nick Vallelonga and Brian Currie. Vallelonga, Currie and Jim Burke will produce.

The true story is set in 1962 and follows Tony Lip (Vallelonga’s real life father), one of the best bouncers in New York City who is in need of work after his nightclub, the Copacabana, shuts down. He takes a gig chauffeuring a highly educated piano-playing prodigy who wants Lip to go on tour with him in the Deep South. While the two clash at first, a bond eventually grows as they travel deeper into the racially charged region.

While a deal has not yet closed, the filmmakers hope to begin production sometime this fall.

After his star-making performance as Aragorn in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Mortensen has been choosy in the roles he takes and has generally stayed away from more commercial films. He has recently teamed with auteurs like John Hillcoat and David Cronenberg on films like “The Road” and “Eastern Promises.” The latter earned him the first of two Oscar nominations. [Source]



Viggo Mortensen’s ‘Unabomb’ Nets Multiple Sales for IM Global

IM Global has inked a raft of deals for “Unabomb,” selling the Viggo Mortensen manhunt movie to distributors across Europe.

The film has landed with Eagle (Italy), Metropolitan (France), Odeon (Greece), Splendid (Benelux), Scanbox (Scandinavia), Tobis (Germany), TriPictures (Spain) and Salim Ramia (Middle East).

“It has a high-caliber studio, director and producer, and Viggo Mortensen is an Academy Award nominee and an actor at the top of his game, with unerring good taste across his previous projects,” IM Global CEO Stuart Ford told Variety. “It also has a brilliant, fast, twist-laden plot, and distributors have responded to all of these elements.”

IM Global is fully financing the feature, which it launched at the Cannes Film Festival. Mortensen plays an FBI agent on the trail of the titular fugitive. His unconventional team of agents track the wanted criminal who they dubbed the Unabomber, traveling across the U.S. and building a picture of the anarcho-terrorist as his attacks become increasingly deadly.

Robert Lorenz (“The Trouble With the Curve”) directs. He has been in the running for Best Picture Oscar three times, for “American Sniper,” “Letters From Iwo Jima,” and “Mystic River,” while Mortensen has had two noms, for “Captain Fantastic” and “Eastern Promises.” Read More



Viggo Mortensen to star in thriller ‘Unabomb’

Two-time Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen will star in the thriller Unabomb for The Trouble With The Curve director Robert Lorenz.

IM Global is fully financing the project and lining up additional cast for a January 2018 production start.

Lorenz is producing Unabomb with Michele Weisler and IM Global’s president of feature film production Greg Shapiro.

Unabomb centres on one of the largest manhunts in history as FBI agent Jim Freeman, played by Mortensen, takes on the unsolved case of the Unabomber, who terrorised Americans with 16 bombings over the course of two decades.

Freeman and his unconventional team travel the country piecing together a profile of the infamous hooded suspect.

However the closer they get to narrowing down the terrorist’s identity, the more deadly and personal the attacks become. Randy Brown adapted the screenplay from the book Unabomber by Jim Freeman, Terry Turchie and Donald Max Noel.

Mortensen earned a lead actor Oscar nod earlier this year for Captain Fantastic, which travelled to the Croisette last year where it earned Matt Ross the directing prize in Un Certain Regard. Mortensen was nominated for the first time for Eastern Promises in 2008.

Unabomb has quality all the way through. Lorenz has earned three best picture Oscar nominations for global smash American Sniper, Letters From Iwo Jima, and Mystic River, while Shapiro shared the best picture Oscar for The Hurt Locker and served as executive producer on Zero Dark Thirty.
