Filming of 'The Road' leads to Pittsburgh [Jan. 16th, 2008|11:09 am]

Found this article this morning at viggoworks_news

Viggo Mortensen will star with Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Kodi Smit-McPhee in "The Road," which will be filmed in Pittsburgh.

Apocalypse, here we come.

Pittsburgh has landed "The Road," a big-screen adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy best-seller of the same name that will star Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and a young Australian actor named Kodi Smit-McPhee.

2929 Entertainment, which is producing the movie, and the Pittsburgh Film Office yesterday confirmed rumors "The Road" will shoot in Southwestern Pennsylvania for eight weeks starting in late February to take advantage of the cold and snow. The film also will spend a week in Louisiana and a week in Oregon.

Hi everyone!

I just found out that Eastern Promises is premiering here in Italy at the Turin Film Festival on December, 1st (yes, we're always behind).

I was wondering if anyone knew if Viggo was planning to attend. I didn't find anything that said he might, but maybe some of you heard different.

"You have my sword." [Sep. 14th, 2007|02:52 am]
Viggo Daily - News Community

A certain scruffy ranger appeared during the last few minutes of the Sept. 13 Colbert Report, offering his sword in support of Stephen Colbert. Due to the hideous facial fur he's sporting for Appaloosa, Viggo seemed to be unrecognized by the audience until he pushed back the hood of his cloak. The show's official site is running the clip, it looks like (won't play on my computer), and the show will repeat Friday the 14th at 10:30am, 4:30pm, and 8:30pm (check your local listings). Good to see Viggo's making the most of his time in NYC. :D

Any one know about these? [Aug. 3rd, 2006|09:17 pm]
Viggo Daily - News Community

So I am on IMBD and am looking at Soon"DVD's and I notice the Trio are being released in Theatrical Format....so I wonder....what the differences are...so I read some of the reviews. the 2nd one under Fellowship says the reviewer is from Wellington and has been given the opportunity to veiw some of the Documentries Uncut and they say that there's stuff we haven't seen yet, like footage of Viggo fishing and more on Sean's foot injury and a lot of "BEEEEEPING" censuring of the cusing done by cast and crew....
Do any of you know anything about these.....I don't mind spending the money...less than $60.00 USA dollars for all 3 including shipping...but it will really bum me out if these are no different from the other two sets we already own!

Some news of Melbourne and Viggo [Mar. 4th, 2006|10:25 pm]
Viggo Daily - News Community

My first post here. I hope this is ok!

During Viggo's recent visit to Australia, he did a heap of interviews promoting AHoV; including the following ones which are available on podcast or on radio websites, but which I don't have the know-how to save.

There was one at Radio National, in a show called Movie Time, broadcast on Thursday 2 March; and the link is here. You can listen, but hopefully someone will be able to save it for us?!

And one at Nova fm, on the breakfast show on Thursday 2 March; the podcast can be found here I think- somewhere...

And yet another at Triple J, with Jay and the Doctor, on Thursday 2 March, with the podcast being available in the next day or so I believe. That one is found here if you scroll down to 'More triple J program podcasts'.

No doubt there are others I've missed; he was a very busy man!

And here is a pic from one of the tv interviews Viggo did on morning tv while he was in Sydney, in his very brief, very hectic visit to Oz.

Viggo's going to be the Encore channel's featured star for January, according to a crawl I just saw at the bottom of the screen. Of course, other than featuring his movies, I have no idea what that means. I went to their site, but there was no mention of it that I could see. Still, more Viggo is always good.

Viggo helps the Lakota Nation [Dec. 20th, 2005|05:01 pm]
Viggo Daily - News Community

I hope this is acceptable here, If not, please let me know.

Please post this in your LJ's and pass it around (I'm not sure where it's acceptable and let's face it, the more it gets around, they better off the Lakota are)...

Viggo Mortensen is a member of the poetry community in Los Angeles and is also an adopted member of the Lakota Nation. Recently, he made a donation to a cause supported by that community, one that is very close to him.

The Lakota Reservation in Hermosa South Dakota is very poor and populated mainly by children and the elderly. Their houses don't have central heat and the winters are harsh. A fundraiser was held by poets in LA this past weekend to raise money for propane, blankets and clothing for the reservation. Mr. Mortensen donated autographed copies of Miyelo, a collection of Lakota/English poems and frontier photographs. Donor fatigue plagues us all this year and there were two books left over. This is a second chance for the donation to benefit the reservation. Please go and bid:


If you cannot afford the asking price and still want to help, there is a wish list that you can choose to purchase from and ship directly to the reservation. These items would include:

Child sized winter coats
Child sized underwear (especially girls)
Child sized long underwear
Child sized mittens, hats and gloves
Child sized shoes
or, monetary donations are also appreciated as well

Please send all donations to:

Lovey Two Bulls
HCR 89 Highway 40
Hermosa, SD 57744

i love my country
by which i mean
i am indebted joyfully
to all the people throughout its history
who have fought the government to make right
where so many cunning sons and daughters
our foremothers and forefathers
came singing through slaughter
came through hell and high water
so that we could stand here
and behold breathlessly the sight
how a raging river of tears
cut a grand canyon of light

DO YOU LOVE ‘A WALK ON THE MOON’ AS MUCH AS WE DO? [Jul. 10th, 2004|09:57 pm]
Viggo Daily - News Community

If you had been lucky enough to attend the Santa Barbara Film Festival to watch a special screening of ‘A Walk on the Moon’ and listen to Pamela Gray, Scriptwriter for the project; you might have had a few surprises.

All admirers of Viggo Mortensen and Diane Lane who are familiar with this film will know this picture

deleted Diane and Viggo

We have all assumed that this came from a deleted scene. However Pamela Gray revealed that this is merely one of many deleted scenes – scenes which illustrated the growing relationship between ‘Walker’ and ‘Pearl’ and which were cut as the Studio felt that ‘Walker Jerome’s’ character was becoming too sympathetic and that in turn ‘Pearl’s’ character would therefore become unsympathetic.

Would you like to see ‘A Walk on the Moon’ as it was originally intended to be seen? Would you like to see a MULTI-REGIONAL re-release?

If so, just send your name, email address, city and state (or appropriate substitution) to: knaustin2000@yahoo.com or didiej@aol.com and we'll enter your information for a petition (see petition below).

Your email address will not be sent with the petition, it will only be used in our database to ensure there is no duplication of names. Other information will only be used in the petition – no where else!

Thanks in advance for your help!

The petition itself will read:-

In light of the recent public support and exposure of Mr. Viggo Mortensen and Ms. Diane Lane, as well as the broad appeal of the movie, "A Walk On The Moon", it is our belief that there would be substantial benefit to all involved if there were to be a re-release of a "directors cut" DVD.(which includes previously cut scenes), of said movie,. The signatures below indicate the amount of global support you can expect if you see fit to re-release "A Walk On the Moon" on a multi-region basis:

New Movie? [Jun. 9th, 2004|02:39 pm]

<< Mortensen on slay ride to 'Violence'
9 Jun 2004 10:32am EDT - By Borys Kit
Reuniting with the studio that made him a star in the Lord of the Rings movies, Viggo Mortensen is in negotiations to topline A History of Violence at New Line Cinema. David Cronenberg is directing. Adapted by Josh Olson from John Wagner and Vince Locke's graphic novel of the same name, Violence tells the story of an ordinary family's life after the father receives unwanted national attention for a seemingly vigilante-style self-defense killing at his diner. Mortensen would play the father. New Line execs Kent Alterman and Cale Boyter are overseeing for the studio. JC Spink and Chris Bender are producing through their Benderspink shingle, while Roger Kass and Josh Braun are executive producing. Mortensen most recently starred in Hidalgo for Walt Disney Studios, but he is best known for playing Aragorn in the Rings trilogy. His credits include 1998's Psycho, Crimson Tide and Carlito's Way. He is repped by CAA, manager Lynn Rawlins and attorney Stuart Rosenthal. Visit HollywoodReporter.com for more ... >>
