Viggo Mortensen Eyes ‘GREEN BOOK’

Viggo Mortensen

Captain Fantastic star Viggo Mortensen is eyeing to star in the upcoming film, GREEN BOOK. 

To be directed by Peter Farrelly from a script he co-wrote with Nick Vallenlonga and Brian Curie, the film will be produced by Curie and Jim Burke.

Green Book tells the story of Tony Lip, one of the best bouncers in New York City in 1962 and what happens to him after his nightclub, the Copacabana is shut 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.

Production is eyeing to start this fall.

Mortensen is known for playing Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. He is quite selective in the roles he takes and wants to stay away from commercial hits. He has worked with auteurs like John Hillcoat’s The Road and David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises. The latter earned him the first of two Oscar nominations.
