Joaquin Phoenix is in Talks to Star In Ari Aster's Next Horror Film 'Beau is Afraid'
What do you get when you cross an batshit Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar) film with one of the best actors of our time? You get what you fuckin' deserve! Hopefully.
According to DiscussingFilm.com, the Joker actor is in talks to star in Ari Aster's upcoming film Beau is Afraid. The project is apparently a priority for him but they have Phoenix specifically in mind and are awaiting his possible signing before deciding on a production date. The films synopsis is as follows:
An anxious man (Joaquin Phoenix) learns of the death of his mother under mysterious circumstances and upon traveling home makes an alarming discovery about his past. During his journey, he runs into various crazy supernatural threats.
That sounds like a goddamn blasty blast of fucked upedness. Here's hoping Aster gets his wish and we get an Oscar winning Joaquin Phoenix in the lead here. Now, let's have another one for the Oscar Toni Collette should've recieved for Hereditary. Now, one more for everyone who subscribes to the newsletter below for more news like this.
