More than twenty years after putting away his sword Anduril in its sheath, Viggo Mortensen, the actor of Aragorn could return in the franchise The Lord of the Rings, and more precisely in The Hunt of Gollum scheduled for 2026. But its actor Viggo Mortensen mentions a conditionsine qua non.

Viggo Mortensen back in Aragorn's skin?

The Lord of the Ring franchisex is indeed returning to the forefront. A marked return by the series The Rings of Power under the leadership of Amazon Prime in 2022, by the animated film The War of Rohirrim planned for this winter, and by the more recent announcement of a brand new Gollum film,The Hunt of Gollum.

The film, which should be released in theaters in 2026, will be made in 2026. by Andy Serkis, who lent his facial features the hideous creature in the Lord of the Rings trilogy between 2001 and 2003. À the production, we will find Peter Jackson. Recently interviewed by GQ on his possible return to the role of Aragorn, Viggo Mortensen remained in the role of Aragorn. somewhat perplexed.

I don't know exactly what the story is, I haven't heard of it, and maybe I will one day. I really liked it play this character. I learned a lot playing Aragorn. But I will only come back if I have the means, given my current age, etc. I would only come back if I fit the character. It would be stupid to do otherwise.

avoid inconsistencies

Viggo Mortensen is therefore ready to take action. bring out the sword of Anduril only if the script is correct. What his character is about is credible, and adapted to the story. &àgrave; his age.Obviously, there is no question of stunts, pirouettes and choreographies, since as he recalls, he is now aged 65 years old. There you go who risks — where applicable — to create a problem of temporality, since the events of the film centered on on the capture of Gollum by Sauron, then his tracking down by Aragorn on the orders of Gandalf at the start of The Community of the Ringtakes place only shortly before those of the 2001 film, a time when the character of Aragorn was still vigorous, and where the actor was only in his forties.

Jackson and his teams could then use digital rejuvenation technology on the actor, as was notably the case in the case for Robert De Niro inThe Irishmanor Harrison Ford inIndiana Jones 5. Another possibility, a more minor role for the American-Danish actor.

In any case, Peter Jackson and Andy Serkis will first have to think about ; call on him, and whoever is next to him the production of the western To the End of the World in theaters since May 1 accepts the challenge.
