Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote, Charlie Wilson’s War) and Viggo Mortensen (A History of Violence, Eastern Promises) are teaming up to fight cannibalistic headhunters in a new film.

Xavier Gens (Hitman) will direct from his own script based on the actual events of the ill-fated scientific exploration of the Pacific by French explorer Jean-François de Galaup, comte de La Pérouse in 1788.

The two ships, the Astrolabe and the Boussole, that were part of the venture vanished whilst navigating the Solomon Islands. It was later learned that both ships had crashed on Vanikoro island just north of Vanuatu, and most of the crew had been headhunted by the native cannibals. Some survivors had built a raft and sailed off, never to be heard from again, whilst two stayed on the island and lived there for another thirty years.

Who wants to bet the two that stay behind are Viggo and PSH?
