From djdeathskiss (via Dark Horizons): Viggo Mortensen is in negotiations to join the cast of Spanish language flick “Teresa” reports Production Weekly. Novelist Ray Loriga is helming the “near psychedelic vision of the raptures and writings of a towering figure, 16th century Spain proto-feminist mystic saint Teresa of Avila. Paz Vega (“Spanglish”) will play Teresa, Mortensen will play a cleric. Victoria Abril and Leonor Watling are also cast. Mortensen worked with Loriga before on 1997’s “My Brother’s Gun”. Shooting begins November 21st in Spain.
UPDATE: Elfstone writes: Viggo was in Spain two days ago promoting A History of Violence in the Sitges Terror Film Festival. He said that he declined the offer of playing in Teresa because he couldn´t have enough time to prepare for the role since he was doing the “A History of Violence” promotion.
