Now where do you start with Joaquin Phoenix? The man is undoubtedly talented but he is one of the many Hollywood stars who have found it difficult to cope with his fame. Joaquin has appeared in the press on a number of occasions for things he really shouldn't be doing.
Then there is that weird documentary thing he made, which was ust ridiculous and made him seem a bit foolish, not to mention his whole rapping thing. Anyway, despite previously claiming that he was turning his back on the movie business, Joaquin has seen sense.
It has been reported that Joaquin Phoenix is being lined up to star in the big screen adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel Inherent Vice. The movie already has The Master director Paul Thomas Anderson attached, as well as producers Megan Ellison, John Lesher and JoAnne Seller.
Robert Downey Jr. was initially lined up to be in Inherent Vice but he has since had to pull out of the project and Paul Thomas Anderson is hoping that Joaquin Phoenix will agree to be the star of the film. Paul is currently working on the sreenplay for Inherent Vice and the are hoping to begin filming later this year, with a view to a 2014 release.
