Viggo walks The Road

Viggo Mortensen While doing press for EASTERN PROMISES, the David Cronenberg directed drama in which he plays a notoriously ruthless gangster tied to a young girl's death investigated by an all too curious Naomi Watts, Viggo Mortensen gave some info on an upcoming film to which he's attached. Says the former warrior of Middle Earth:

There’s a book called ‘The Road’ by Cormac McCarthy. They’re going to make a movie of that and the people making [it] have expressed interest [in me]. Visually, it’s going to be a very beautiful movie. It’s a very good story.

It's a Pulitzer Prize winning story, in fact, set in a post-apocalyptic future and centering on a road trip between a father and his young son. Mortensen is presumably up for the role of "father". Read the rest of what he had to say over HERE. He can next be seen in the aforementioned EASTERN PROMISES and the drama GOOD.

Extra Tidbit: Mortensen shares a birthday with director Danny Boyle.
