Joaquin Phoenix To Star in Todd Haynes' NC-17 Gay Film

Joaquin Phoenix and Todd Haynes are teaming up for the director’s upcoming NC-17 gay film.

In a recent interview with IndieWire, Haynes confirmed the movie will be his project after May December, the romantic drama that just premiered at Cannes. “The next film is a feature that’s an original script that I developed with Joaquin Phoenix based on some thoughts and ideas he brought to me,” the filmmaker revealed. “We basically wrote with him as a story writer. Me and Jon Raymond and Joaquin share the story credit. And we hope to be shooting it beginning early next year. It’s a gay love story set in 1930s L.A.”

“Joaquin was pushing me further and going, ‘No, let’s go further.’ This will be an NC-17 film,” Haynes continued. He also noted that he has a number of additional projects in the near future, “I have more features planned. I have also episodic projects coming that are planned, that are really exciting. I’m going back to work with Kate Winslet with something she brought me for HBO.”
