Two-time Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen will star in the thriller Unabomb for The Trouble With The Curve director Robert Lorenz.
Im Global is fully financing the project and lining up additional cast for a January 2018 production start.
Lorenz is producing Unabomb with Michele Weisler and Im Global’s president of feature film production Greg Shapiro.
Unabomb centres on one of the largest manhunts in history as FBI agent Jim Freeman, played by Mortensen, takes on the unsolved case of the Unabomber, who terrorised Americans with 16 bombings over the course of two decades.
Freeman and his unconventional team travel the country piecing together a profile of the infamous hooded suspect.
However the closer they get to narrowing down the terrorist’s identity, the more deadly and personal the attacks become. Randy Brown adapted the screenplay from the book Unabomber by Jim Freeman, Terry Turchie and Donald
