Joaquin Phoenix roped in for Ari Aster's Disappointment Blvd
Written by Aster, the film is said to be an "intimate, decades-spanning portrait of one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time"
Oscar-winner Joaquin Phoenix has been roped in to play the lead in Ari Aster's upcoming feature Disappointment Blvd.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, production house A24 is all set to finance and produce the project.
Disappointment Blvd, written by Aster, is said to be an "intimate, decades-spanning portrait of one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time." However, details of the plotline are currently under wraps.
Aster will also produce the film with Lars Knudsen, under their Square Peg banner. While it remains unclear when the production will begin, it is likely that Phoenix will shoot for the film before Kitbag, the Ridley Scott movie in which he plays Napoleon Bonaparte. Phoenix will be seen next in Mike Mills’ C’mon C’mon, which was shot in 2019.
