Joaquin Phoenix stays in the picture

HollywoodNews.com: According to Hollywood, Joaquin Phoenix is still here; in the business that is. Despite Casey Affleck’s documentary which chronicles Phoenix’s segue from acting to hip-hop, there are a number of roles on the table for the respected actor, and the word is that he’s not retiring.

Of those projects that Phoenix circled per the Hollywood Reporter:

–The Edgar Allan Poe period thriller “The Raven” opposite John Cusack as the famed author. Phoenix would play a police detective working with the writer on a serial murder case.

–Star opposite Sean Penn in “Genius,” the story of literary editor Max Perkins. Film centers on the relationship between Perkins and young novelist Thomas Wolfe. Phoenix would play the eccentric Wolfe.

–The actor received an offer to star in the Jonah Hill Fox comedy “The Sitter” as a drug dealer. “Sitter” is about a college student who is cornered into baby-sitting three neighborhood misfit kids.

–Phoenix is actually attached to “Big Shoe,” an indie dram-edy about a foot and shoe fetishist who doubles as an amazing footwear designer. The film has yet to secure financing, but director Steven Shainberg has Phoenix’s word to join the project.

As far as Phoenix contracting himself to some of these offers, some speculate that he’s just waiting for “I’m Still Here” to play out in theaters. “I’m Still Here,” from distributor Magnolia, opens today in select cities.
