LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Casey Affleck will get behind a camera lens to track the musical career of fellow actor Joaquin Phoenix , who portrayed Johnny Cash in ” Walk the Line .”
Affleck is directing a documentary feature on his friend and brother-in-law Phoenix, who in the fall announced his retirement from the thespian business in order to focus on a music career.
Phoenix is embarking on a new path as a rapper, with an album to be produced by Sean Combs . He is scheduled to make his first public performance Friday at a Las Vegas club, which will officially kick off Affleck’s shoot.
Affleck is known for his work in front of the camera with movies like ” Gone Baby Gone ,” ” The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford ” and the ” Ocean’s Eleven ” series. He directed a series of shorts for Sundance Channel in the late 1990s. He is married to Summer Phoenix , sister of his new film subject.
