Remember last year, when were all younger and we were definitely not fooled by Joaquin Phoenix’s “hip-hop career” that was being documented by his stoolie Casey Affleck? It turns out we were right to not be fooled by Phoenix and Affleck’s “controversial” hijinks: They were filming it the whole time for a documentary that they are trying to sell right now. They are keeping the plot of the documentary under wraps right now, but I’m betting it has to do with a misguided attempt to show how the celebrity gossip factory works and how entertainment writers are slimeballs for reporting that Joaquin Phoenix is a tool because he was just “acting” like a tool. But that’s just my guess.
We’ll apparently know soon, as a deal for the movie is expected to be announced in short order. [DListed]
