Academy Award® nominee Viggo Mortensen (EASTERN PROMISES, THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy) and Academy Award® winner Mahershala Ali (MOONLIGHT, HIDDEN FIGURES) star in Participant Media and DreamWorks Pictures’ GREEN BOOK. Directed and Co-Written by Peter Farrelly, the film is inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.
When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans.
Set against the backdrop of a country grappling with the valor and volatility of the Civil Rights Movement, two men will be confronted with racism and danger and be comforted by generosity, kindness and their own unique senses of humor. Together, they will challenge long-held assumptions, push past their seemingly insurmountable differences, and embrace their shared humanity.
Jim Burke (The Descendants), Charles B. Wessler (THE HEARTBREAK KID) produce alongside Farrelly’s fellow writers, Brian Currie and Nick Vallelonga, and Farrelly. The drama is executive produced by Participant’s Jeff Skoll (THE HELP) and Jonathan King (LINCOLN), along with Octavia Spencer (FRUITVALE STATION) and Kwame L. Parker (KILL BILL series), as well as Cinetic Media’s John Sloss (BOYHOOD) and Steven Farneth. Linda Cardellini (BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, THE FOUNDER) co-stars.
