Actor will also produce film to be shot in Denmark, Argentina

Viggo Mortensen has signed on to produce and star in Lisandro Alonso’s untitled drama set in Denmark and Argentina.

Andy Kleinman’s Massive Inc. will produce together with Mortensen’s Perceval Films banner and Alonso’s 4L. Jaime Romandia of Mantarraya and Ilse Hughan of Fortuna Films are also producing.

Production is scheduled to start early next year in Denmark and Argentina. Script by Alonso and Fabian Casas follows a Dane and his daughter who journey to a desert that exists in a realm beyond the confines of civilization.

Alonso’s first film, “La Libertad,” screened in the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes in 2001. His last film, “Liverpool,” premiered at Cannes.

Mortensen, whose father is Danish, was last seen as Sigmund Freud in “A Dangerous Method” and will be seen next in “On the Road” and “Two Faces of January,” Hossein Amini’s directorial debut. He’s managed by Lynn Rawlins. [Source]
