Reports surfaced yesterday that River Phoenix’s last unfinished film, Dark Blood, was to be completed after 18 years. Sluizer reportedly said he was still in touch with the Phoenix family, and that he planned to ask River’s brother, actor Joaquin Phoenix, to provide the voiceover for River’s character.

This was apparently news to Joaquin Phoenix and family, as the actor’s rep has released the following statement to EW: “Despite George Sluizer’s claim that he has been communicating with River Phoenix’s family in regard to releasing River’s last film, Joaquin Phoenix and his family have not been in communication with the director nor will they participate in any way.”

Sluizer couldn’t be reached for comment.

River Phoenix’s final film Dark Blood will finally be released after 18 years, according to director George Sluizer. Sluizer hid the original Dark Blood footage following Phoenix’s death on Halloween night in 1993, but recently began re-editing the project.

The Dutch filmmaker has said he’ll ask the actor’s brother Joaquin Phoenix to provide voiceover for River’s character. Sluizer told The Hollywood Reporter: “The voices of both brothers are very much alike.”

Dark Tale is the story of a man (Phoenix) who begins an affair with a married woman (Judy Davis) as he awaits the end of the world. Sluizer expects Dark Tale to be released sometime in 2012, although the title may be changed due to rights disputes.

The Tracking Board says Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures, who is currently financing Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master and Spike Jonze’s upcoming political satire, is apparently trying to grab stars from both of those projects for a new one.

After Jonze finishes the film he’s currently doing with Charlie Kaufman, he’s apparently hoping to cast Joaquin Phoenix (and possibly Carey Mulligan and Amy Adams) to do a humorous love story with a narrator.

Production would begin in the middle of next year when all of the above parties having finished their current work.

Back in March Deadline broke news about a new, untitled project doing the rounds from director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman. At the time all that was known about the latest project from the duo behind Being John Malkovich and Adaptation was that it was a political satire and that Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Productions was coming on to back the project. Deadline described the story as “a satire about how world leaders gather to figure out all the seismic events that will take place in the worlds, from oil prices to wars that will be waged.”

Things have been quiet since but Twitch has learned that Warner Brothers have now also come on board. Plot details remain sketchy but Joaquin Phoenix is attached to star and Vincent Landay to produce with a March 2012 start date eyed for production.

We Own The Night writer/director James Gray is fast mobilizing his next film. It’s called Low Life, and it will star Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix, with Jeremy Renner in discussions to play the third lead. The project is being packaged by CAA. Several financiers are in the mix, but I hear that Wild Bunch will likely get it. Discussions are also taking place with domestic distributors, and deal is expected to be sealed shortly. The Hurt Locker’s Greg Shapiro is producing.

I’m told that Cotillard will play a woman attempting to immigrate from Poland. Her American dream turns into a nightmare. While sailing to Ellis Island and a new start, her sister grows deathly ill and she is forced to trade sexual favors for medicine and food to keep her sister alive. Once they land, she is warned to keep quiet about what happened. Though she does, she walks away with immigration papers that deem her a woman with bad morals. With no place to go, she falls prey to a charming sleazebag (Phoenix), who persuades her to turn tricks in New York. Renner is close to signing on to play the sleazebag’s cousin, a magician who sweeps the young woman off her feet and is her best chance to escape the nightmarish life she has fallen into. This will be Gray’s fourth film with Phoenix, who previously starred in The Yards, We Own The Night and most recently Two Lovers.

Shooting is to begin next year. All of the actors are busy. Cotillard is starring in The Dark Knight Rises, Renner will star in the Tony Gilroy-directed The Bourne Legacy, and Phoenix has returned to work starring in Paul Thomas Anderson’s untitled drama.
