Joaquin Phoenix


Joaquin Phoenix is reuniting with his director in "We Own the Night, James Gray, to work together for new drama flick "Two Lovers."

Set to bring up his third collaboration with New York-born filmmaker James Gray, Joaquin Phoenix has given his agreement to topline the older man's new feature directorial project which 2929 Production is financing.

Titled "Two Lovers", the drama concerns a Brooklyn man who gets torn between a family friend his parents wish he would marry and the beautiful but volatile new neighbor with whom he falls passionately in love. It is learned that "Proof" star Gwyneth Paltrow is in final talks to also take starring slot in the flick.

Filming is scheduled to start in November with Gray directing from script he wrote alongside Ric Menello. In charge to produce are Donna Gigliotti and Anthony Katagas while Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban are both accompanying 2929 Productions president Marc Butan as the executive producers.

Phoenix and Gray have worked together in 2000's "The Yards" and the upcoming "We Own the Night", slated for an October 12, 2007 release nationwide under Columbia Pictures banner. "Lovers" will be the fourth helming stint for Gray, who made his debut through tense psychological drama "Little Odessa."
