Coming off the success of ‘Green Book’, the ‘Captain Fantastic’ star is also trying his hand on writing the script for the film about a gay man whose conservative father moves in with him and his family.
Mortensen also wrote the script and stars in the film – as a gay man whose conservative father, played by “Aliens” actor Lance Henriksen, moves in with him and his family.
Linney will play his character’s sister, while Gross has been cast as the mother of Viggo’s John Peterson, and Chen will play his partner.
Mortensen, who will also produce the project, has teamed up with his Eastern Promises production designer and editor, Carol Spier and Ronald Sanders, for “Falling”.
He also has crime drama “Unabomb“, about an FBI agent who leads an unconventional team on the hunt for notorious murderer Ted Kaczynski, in pre-production.
