The director then added: “The next film is a feature film based on an original screenplay that I developed with Joaquin Phoenix, based on some thoughts and ideas that he came up with. We basically wrote it with him busy as author. Joaquin, Jonathan Raymond, and I share story credits. And we hope to shoot it early next year. It is a gay love story set in 1930s Los Angeles“.
