Viggo Mortensen has proved yet again that he is loyal to his fans. This loyalty runs so deep that he’s willing to give them exactly what they want in the upcoming Spanish-language film Everybody Has a Plan : more Viggo Mortensen.
As seen in the newly released trailer, the Argentina based film will see Viggo Mortensen star alongside himself as twins Agustin and Pedro. Fans will be able to see both sides of Viggo that they’ve come to love – the clean-cut but strong side seen in A History of Violence and Eastern Promises, as well as the dirty, borderline-hippy but dreamy-eyed side showcased in The Lord of the Rings, Hidalgo, and The Road. No longer will audiences have to decide which Viggo they want to see — both will be available in the upcoming thriller.
This is all but promised by the film’s synopsis, which reads “Everybody Has a Plan tells the story of Agustín (Mortensen), a man desperate to abandon what for him has become, after years of living in Buenos Aires, a very frustrating existence. After the death of his twin brother, Pedro, Agustín decides to start a new life, adopting the identity of his brother and returning to the mysterious region of the Delta, in the Tigre, where they lived when they were boys. However, shortly after his return, Agustín will find himself unwillingly involved in the dangerous criminal world that was a part of his brother’s life.”
If this can be done correctly, the end result can actually showcase the actor’s range and ability. While many enjoy poking fun at Nicolas Cage – with good reason – they often forget his amazing work in Adaptation. Sadly, it’s difficult to say the same for Michael Keaton in Multiplicity.
The film, directed by newcomer Ana Piterbarg, has already released in Argentina and at the Toronto Independent Film Festival. While we’re waiting for a US release date, have a nice long look at Viggo Mortensen and his co-star Viggo Mortensen in the new trailer. Enjoy!
