Like I've said all along, I just don't see this happening. Phoenix is the complete antithesis of anything resembling mainstream Hollywood, and probably the absolute last person I would ever imagine doing a film like this. If he signs on, great, I'm actually intrigued at the notion. If not, if for no other reason than how uncertain he's been up to this point, it should come as no surprise.

And I believe the song is titled, "Blitzkrieg Bob," not, "Blitzkrieg Pop."

Guess there's no Stones biopic in the works.

In all seriousness, I can't think of a better director to helm this project...as long as it comes after Sinatra.

The only reason I could see this happening is if the character Dr. Strange is in some way enticing to Phoenix, given the eccentric nature of his person. I still say this comes across as wishful thinking, especially considering the other casting rumors swirling around as recent as this week. If it happens, I'll be the first to admit I was wrong; until then, I'll believe it when I see it.

Been sayin' it for months, the Best Actor race is already down to three: Keaton, Carrell, and Phoenix. Should be interesting to see which man wins, as it may very well be the best shot each one of them will ever have at walking away with the highly-coveted honor.

Been looking forward to this one for nearly two years. Glad to see it's finally upon us.
I nominate this for worst idea in some time. As always, I'll stick with the original.

It doesn't take a genius to know this'll be a heavy-hitter come awards season. It was practically a front-runner when the year began. Keaton, on the other hand, now that was a surprise.
