Viggo Mortensen is Captain Fantastic – New Mexico Style

Posted by on April 22, 2014 | One comment

UPDATE 6/12/14: Filming is scheduled to begin, in New Mexico this August!

Viggo Mortensen in Captain Fantastic to film in New Mexico

Writer-director, Matt Ross has tapped a star for “Captain Fantastic”. In fact, much ado has been made of actor Viggo Mortensen taking up the lead in the upcoming film, here, here and here.

Now OHI can exclusively report that the off-the-grid drama will follow in the footsteps of another technology driven thriller which filmed right here in NM.

Like Wally Phister’s New Mexico film, “Transcendence”, “Captain Fantastic” looks like it will explore the intimacies and complications between humans and technology. Both films also share the distinction of being led by a film franchise star. Where Transcendence had Depp (Pirate’s of the Caribbean), Fantastic has The Lord of the Rings’ Aragorn – this time out as a father who will attempt to assimilate back into today’s technological world, after ten years living a disconnected mountain life with his six children.

New Mexico will share filming of Captain Fantastic with Washington State, as the mountains from which we’ll see Mortensen emerge from are those of the Pacific Northwest…

Matt Ross on Mortensen joining the film, to Deadline:

“Viggo Mortensen’s dedication to his craft and to the world of the story he’s telling have been an inspiration to me for years. There is a depth to his art that I greatly admire. Any film he’s in is a film I want to see. He’s one of the greats. Getting to collaborate with him on Captain Fantastic is quite literally the best thing that’s happened to me since my wife asked me to marry her.”

Lynette Howell and Jamie Patricof (The Place Beyond the Pines, Blue Valentine) will produce.

Production is set to start in early June.

Stay tuned!
