A few weeks ago, Joaquin Phoenix and director Gus Van Sant announced that they were reuniting for a movie once again, this time a biopic about quadriplegic cartoonist John Callahan. It looks like the movie is picking up, because now both Rooney Mara and Jonah Hill are in talks to co-star in the movie, an adaptation of Callahan’s autobiography Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot.

In what could be one of the more interesting casting choices of his career (I’m Still Here notwithstanding), Joaquin Phoenix is currently eyeing a role in Mary Magdalene, the new drama featuring Rooney Mara as the titular character. As expected, Phoenix isn’t considering just any role — nope, he’s in very early talks to play the part of Jesus Christ, which…actually kind of makes sense.

Over the past few years, Joaquin Phoenix has flirted with multiple big-budget superhero movies. He was offered roles in The Avengers (as Bruce Banner/Hulk), Batman vs. Superman and Marvel’s Doctor Strange, and come very close to signing a deal (Marvel was hoping up until the very last moment to be able to introduce Phoenix as Strange at Comic-Con in 2014) before eventually opting to pass on all three. But, why? The actor opened up about his decision making process admitting that it’s probably best if he doesn’t ever star in a superhero movie.

Not a year goes by without a new Woody Allen film, so even when he delivers a so-so product, there’s always the promise of a better film around the corner. This year brings Irrational Man, which is set to make its debut at Cannes next month ahead of its summer release. The first trailer has arrived to promote the Cannes premiere, and looks to feature rather charming performances from Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix.

Although we were a bit underwhelmed by Woody Allen’s last film, ‘Magic in the Moonlight,’ we—much like the fictional characters in the film, and humanity as a whole—were still charmed to pieces by Emma Stone’s performance. Stone is reteaming with Allen for his next film, which also stars Joaquin Phoenix and, based on the cast alone, seems fairly promising. We haven’t known much about his upcoming project, but it now has an official title: ‘Irrational Man.’

Joaquin Phoenix knows a pullout couch when he sees one -- even if its own owner isn't aware of its convenient (and comfy!) extras. On last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' guest Joaquin Phoenix somehow hit upon the idea that he and host Jimmy Kimmel should pop into bed to close out the show. Where do ideas come from? What day is it? Where will someone find a bed on the stage of a late night talk show?

'Inherent Vice' Review: Paul Thomas Anderson's Stoner 'Top Secret!'

It’s a weird thing, I can already tell that ‘Inherent Vice’ will grow on me after time. I can already tell I like it better as I type this than I did while watching it. People will compare ‘Inherent Vice’ to the Coen brothers’ 1998 movie ‘The Big Lebowski’ and that’s totally fair because I’m going to do just that right now. Both films feature protagonists – with an affinity for marijuana use – who experience a remarkable adventure while searching for something that doesn’t matter. Sixteen years later, Mickey Woolfman means about as much as the money for a urine-soaked rug. It matters to the character but it never really matters much to us and, in both of these cases, we wind up being right.
