Joaquin Phoenix‘s next movie, “C’mon C’mon”, to film in New Orleans, and how to audition for a role Louisiana.
According to reports, Joaquin Phoenix’s “C’mon C’mon” is now filming in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The new movie is an upcoming American drama feature film, written and directed by Mike Mills. Along with Joaquin Phoenix, the movie stars Gaby Hoffmann. The movie centers around Phoenix playing a documentary filmmaker.
“Phoenix will play a documentary filmmaker whose latest project involves gifted children, while the story will find him bonding with his smart-yet-sensitive nephew, whose father struggles with bipolar disorder and is in the grips of a maniac episode’”
Joaquin Phoenix won the Golden Globe for best performance by an actor in a motion picture drama. Joker was one of the biggest movies of 2019 and continues to transform the film industry for its acting, filmmaking, and screenwriting.
This news comes after a rumored ‘Joker’ sequel is coming soon. During Deadline’s recent ‘The Contenders New York event, ‘Joker’ director Todd Phillips said he was willing to create a sequel to the hit film.
“When a movie does $1 billion and cost $60 million to make, of course it comes up,” he laughed. “But Joaquin and I haven’t really decided on it. We’re open. I mean, I’d love to work with him on anything, quite frankly. So who knows? But it would have to have a real thematic resonance the way this one did, ultimately being about childhood trauma and the lack of love, and the loss of empathy. All those things are really what made this movie work for us, so we’d have to have something that had an equal thematic resonance.”
