After a two-year break between "The Road" and "A Dangerous Method," Viggo Mortensen is on something of a streak (if you can call it that). This year found the actor on the festival circuit with Walter Salles' "On The Road" and the Argentinian drama "Everybody Has A Plan," he's currently shooting "The Two Faces Of January" alongside Kirsten Dunst, and he's looking stay busy in the new year.

Viggo Mortensen

After a two-year break between "The Road" and "A Dangerous Method," Viggo Mortensen is on something of a streak (if you can call it that). This year found the actor on the festival circuit with Walter Salles' "On The Road" and the Argentinian drama "Everybody Has A Plan," he's currently shooting "The Two Faces Of January" alongside Kirsten Dunst, and he's looking stay busy in the new year.

The actor will star in and produce the next feature effort from Lisandro Alonso. While the director isn't quite a household name, his films "La Libertad" and "Liverpool" have screened at the Cannes Film Festival, so he's certainly got some cred. Co-written by Alonso and Fabian Casas, the story will follow "a Dane and his daughter who journey to a desert that exists in a realm beyond the confines of civilization." So...an even more existential or perhaps fantastical version of "The Road"? Needless to say, we're curious.

Mortensen will head to Denmark and Argentina early next year to shoot, and we'll keep our eyes peeled on the festival circuit perhaps in late 2013 or more likely 2014 for this one to pop up. [Variety]
