We reported last year that Casey Affleck was directing a film about actor Joaquin Phoenix's "retirement" from acting and his pursuit of a rap career. Deadline New York is now reporting that Affleck has finished the film and it is now being shopped to distributors.

The site reports that the film was screened at William Morris Endeavor, the agency that is packaging the film for distribution and that buyers were, "sworn to secrecy" over its content. It was also said that Harvey Weinstein was one of the buyers in attendance at the screening last week.

It doesn't seem that a title has been chosen for this film quite yet and we'll be sure to keep you posted on any further developments on this Joaquin Phoenix mockumentary as soon as we have more information.

    this movie should NEVER in a million years be realased. Phoenix lost his mind and he now thinks he is a rapper when he is not the kind of person to do that. hes on drugs or hes drinking and what makes him think hes a rapper all of the sudden? Casey Affleck is pouring more fuel to the fire in making this movie and if he thinks he will make it big with this hes nuts, he will never make it as big as his brother Ben if he realses this movies
