Joaquin Phoenix to star in Woody Allen's next film

05.02.2014by:

Woody Allen, even at the age of 78, is not slowing down. With his next film, MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT, slated to hit theaters this summer, Allen is already planning his next film. No details exist regarding the plot of the movie but Deadline reports that Joaquin Phoenix will star in it.

Phoenix is coming off a pair of critically acclaimed performances in Paul Thomas Anderson's THE MASTER and last year's HER while Allen is prepping his tenth film in the last decade, excluding short films and acting roles like in John Turturro's FADING GIGOLO. MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT follows Allen's critically acclaimed BLUE JASMINE which garnered Cate Blanchett and Oscar. Could this pairing lead to Joaquin Phoenix nabbing an Academy Award?

While Woody Allen's output has been very hit or miss over the last few decades, the last few dramatic films he has made (MATCH POINT, CASSANDRA'S DREAM, and VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA) have been some of the best of his career. I am sure Phoenix would do a great job in any genre for Allen, but I am crossing my fingers we get a serious role.

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT will hit theaters July 25th.

The Academy hates bad publicity more than they do actors' opinions. Don't count the man out just for something he said one time. He's not the first and by God he won't be the last to talk smack about the Oscars.

Hope it's a serious role. Would love to see a good serious Allen film again in the same vein and quality as Match Point and Cassandra's Dream. And would also be awesome to see Phoenix win an Oscar.

I feel that recently Allen films alternate between good and mediocre. You will me a tall dark stranger (average), Midnight in Paris (good), To Rome with Love (Average), Blue Jasmine (good). If the pattern continues this will be an average one, but even average Woody Allen is entertaining and Phoenix is normally always good.
