Director Lynne Ramsay Has Revealed She Will Reunite With Her You were never really here star Joaquin Phoenix for her next movie Polaris, in which Phoenix will star alongside his real-life partner Rooney Mara.
“He’s crazy, but he’s the best actor I’ve ever met,” Ramsay told Spanish outlet El Espanol (via Dark Horizons). “Everything he does on set is for a reason. It’s much harder when you come up with such an original idea, but it’s impossible not to get excited when you’re preparing a movie with Joaquin.”
Oscar winner Phoenix is currently shooting Disappointment Blvd. for Hereditary director Ari Aster, while Mara will be seen next in Guillermo del Toro’s nightmare alley, which will open in December.
As for Ramsay, the filmmaker has signed on to direct an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon late last year, and is also attached to an adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s short story stone mattress. True Polaris fits into this scheme, we’ll have to wait and see.
