Joaquin Phoenix To Star As Napoleon In New Film

They last worked in Scott's Oscar-winning, Gladiator, which starred Joaquin Phoenix as the villain.

Veteran director Ridley Scott and Hollywood star Joaquin Phoenix are teaming up once again for a period feature, titled ' Kitbag', which will see the "Joker" actor play French military leader and emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.

Phoenix and Scott, of course, made quite the pairing when it came to the 2000 blockbuster Gladiator starring Russell Crowe. It is going to be on the French military leader and emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte. After the late actor, Heath Ledger, Phoenix remained the second actor who perfectly portrayed the complexity of DC Comic's most feared villain, The Joker. It is viewed through the prism of his addictive and often volatile relationship with his wife, muse, and a true love, Josephine.

The outlet shares the film's title stems from the saying, "There is a general's staff hidden in every soldier's kitbag". Disney will release the movie through their 20th Century Studios banner.

Ridley Scott also intends to launch the picture into production after finishing work on the drama about the fashion house "Gucci" with Lady Gaga as Patricia Reggiani. The intention of the movie is to seize Napoleon's well-known battles, relentless ambition and astounding strategic thoughts as a rare army chief and warfare visionary. Scott is to direct from a screenplay now being written by David Scarpa, who penned Scott's All the Money in the World and whose credits include 2008's The Day the Earth Stood Still and 2001's The Last Castle. 'Kitbag' is likely to go into production after the Gucci murder mystery production is wrapped up.

While the choice of Joaquin Phoenix as Napoleon looks impressive to us.
