Viggo Mortensen Plays Against Himself in the 'Everybody Has a Plan' TrailerDamon Houx |
The European thriller 'Everybody has a Plan' has a familiar but usually successful hook. What if you could swap identities with someone else? Here the lead characters are played by Viggo Mortensen, a mild mannered and bored married man who enters his twin brother's world of crime.
This sounds a lot like the Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle 'Maximum Risk' where JCVD has to investigate his brother's death. But, like we said, it's a familiar device, so it's all about the execution. Here's the synopsis:
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.
The film just played TIFF, and is already open in Europe, but with Mortensen as the star, it should come to America at some point. Here's the trailer:
