Joaquin Phoenix’s Mockumentary Being Shopped Around
Joaquin Phoenix’s mockumentary is complete and the actor is shopping around for a buyer, according to MTV News. A private viewing of the film was shown to the executives of the William Morris Endeavor Talent Agency. Included in this important group was Harvey Weinstein.
In January of 2009, Phoenix announced that he would be filming a serious, straight documentary. After that announcement, Joaquin started appearing around Hollywood in a full mustache and beard with long hair to match. His appearance on the David Letterman show, where he mumbled his way through the interview, was considered to be a hoax and connected to his mockumentary. He has also fallen off a stage during a performance in Las Vegas and reportedly signed a rap deal with Diddy.
The secrecy that surrounds Phoenix’s mockumentary is sure to increase the public’s desire to see it. A deal is in the works and should be announced within days.
