Viggo Mortensen is in talks to star in CAPTAIN FANTASTIC. The story follows a wilderness man (Mortensen) who takes his children to their grandparents to bury their mother after she dies. Sounds like Mortensen will be dusting off his “survivalist father” role from John Hillcoat’s “The Road.”
Matt Ross will direct from his own script. Lynette Howell will produce for Electric City Entertainment.
Mortensen is best known for the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and was last seen in “On the Road.”
He is repped by Principato-Young Entertainment.
