Todd Haynes Teases Details of Joaquin Phoenix’ “Sexually Explicit” Scenes on Gay Period Drama ‘Beau Is Afraid’

Joaquin Phoenix

Ooh, la la! Todd Haynes has gotten fans excited as he teased about his gay period drama with Joaquin Phoenix being a little spicy.

In an interview with Variety at the Deauville American Film Festival, Haynes teased fans about his upcoming love story with the ‘Joker’ star, hinting that the film is going to be between two men set in the 30s that has “explicit sexual content.”

“One is a Native American character and one is a corrupt cop in LA. It’s set in the 30s. They have to flee L.A. ultimately and go to Mexico. But it’s a love story and with a strong sexual component,” Haynes said.

Haynes also attributed the idea to Phoenix, saying that his co-star had some thoughts, questions, and images, and then, he came to Haynes to connect them all together.  Haynes said they talked on the phone and their ideas developed into a script.

Additionally, Haynes also remarked that it was Phoenix who would be presumably playing the role of the corrupt cop who was “pushing it further into more dangerous territory, sexually.”

Haynes had previously discussed openly the explicitness of the film, having spoken to IndieWire at the Cannes Film Festival to reveal that the film would be rated NC-17.

Fans will have to patiently wait for the movie though as plans to release it have been pushed back until at least 2024, especially with the casting for the Native American character not being finished yet and the ongoing SAG-AFRTA strike which could delay Phoenix’s schedule.
