Steve Zahn, Kathryn Hahn Join Viggo Mortensen’s ‘Captain Fantastic’

Steve Zahn, Kathryn Hahn, Missi Pyle and Erin Moriarty have joined Viggo Mortensen’s comedy-drama “Captain Fantastic,” which has started shooting in New Mexico and Washington.

Producers are Shivani Rawat and Nimitt Mankad through ShivHans Pictures, and Lynette Howell and Jamie Patricof through Electric City Entertainment. Entertainment One has taken international sales rights and will directly distribute in the U.K., Canada and Australia/New Zealand.

Matt Ross is directing from his own script, in which Mortensen portrays a father devoted to teaching his six children how to live, be free, and survive in the world that he has moved them deep into the forests of the Pacific Northwest. When forced to leave the self-created paradise and confront the real world, he begins a journey that challenges his unorthodox parenting.

Zahn was most recently seen in “Dallas Buyers Club” and Hahn was in “Bad Words.” Pyle recently wrapped David Fincher’s “Gone Girl.”
