November 19, 2015

Casey Affleck and the hirsute, fake-rapping muse of his I'm Still Here are teaming up for another project. THR reports that the littlest Affleck and brother-in-law Joaquin Phoenix will make their collaborative sophomore effort with Far Bright Star, a period Western that will assumedly see Phoenix in a giant beard again. It's said he'll play an aging cavalryman leading a young, ragtag group on a 1916 hunt for Pancho Villa; he ends up losing most of his group and finds himself struggling for survival in the desert, like that guy in Gerry. It remains unclear why Affleck and Phoenix can't just go on an awkward hunting or golfing trip like normal brother-in-laws.
