American actor and ‘Joker’ star Joaquin Phoenix is partnering with Todd Haynes for a gay period romance!
The news was revealed by Haynes himself at the Cannes Film Festival where his queer drama ‘May December’ premiered. He said that Phoenix brought the idea of the new film himself.
“There’s another movie I want to do in early 2024,” Haynes said. “It’s a project that Joaquin Phoenix brought to me, and it’s set in the 1930s: a love story between two men, based on an original, very audacious scenario.”
He added that this is going to be Phoenix’s first gay role and that he is “very excited about this project.”
