Joaquin Phoenix to Star in Ari Aster’s ‘Disappointment Blvd.’


Deadline is reporting that Joaquin Phoenix has been cast in Ari Aster’s upcoming Disappointment Blvd. For months, rumors have been swirling that Phoenix and Aster would be teaming up for a project, and we are finally beginning to learn a little bit more. At this time, little is known about the film as plot details are being kept mostly under wraps, but it is described as “an intimate, decades-spanning portrait of one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time.”

It is also being reported that A24 will produce and finance, and with the magic that Aster and A24 have made in the past with Hereditary and Midsommar, we can’t wait to see Phoenix in his first film post Oscar win.

Phoenix is set to star in C’mon C’mon as Johnny and Kitbag as Napoleon Bonaparte. You can see Phoenix in two of his most recent projects, Joker (now streaming on HBO) and Guardians of Life.

Stay tuned for more information.
