Taking that into consideration, this latest change isn’t even that drastic compared to some of its others in the past.
As for the film, there isn’t much information about the production at this point other than the basic plot.
Screenrant stated that the story is about a successful entrepreneur and that it will follow his life through the decades, with all its ups and downs.
Joaquin Phoenix’s last role that required him to transform was, of course, 2019’s The Joker!
The actor previously revealed that he needed to lose a whopping 50 pounds to portray the iconic villain to the point that he was close to developing an eating disorder!
After all, the production was absolutely obsessed with every pound, every song he dropped on the scale was considered very important.
Throughout the process, although difficult, the actor said he managed to learn a lot about himself, including how much more freedom he had to move in different ways in his new body.
Are you looking forward to his new movie?
