“Lord of the Rings” star Viggo Mortensen is preparing to go behind the camera for his directorial debut — a film dubbed “Falling”.

The script — also penned by the actor and BAFTA, Golden Globe and two-time Oscar nominee — centres around the key character, John Petersen (Mortensen), and unfolds as an “intimate drama about a son’s relationship with his ageing father”.

The story follows Petersen, who lives with his partner, Eric, and their adopted daughter, Monica, in Southern California. His father, Willis (three-time Golden Globe nominee Lance Henriksen), is a farmer whose attitudes and behaviour belong to a far more traditional era and family model. When Willis travels to Los Angeles for an indefinite stay with John’s family in order to search for a place to retire, these two very different worlds collide (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Sverrir Gudnason (“The Girl in the Spider’s Web”, “Borg vs McEnroe”, “Original”), also stars; with the film to be produced by Daniel Bekerman (“The Witch”, “Percy”) of Scythia Films together with Mortensen, who previously produced “Everyone Has a Plan”, “Far From Men” and “Jauja” through Perceval Pictures.
