It’s still hard to tell if it’s a genre movie of any sort at this time, but Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar) has set up his next project, which will reunite the filmmaker with A24.
The film is titled Disappointment Blvd., and Joaquin Phoenix was recently attached to star. Deadline provides an update on the project today, revealing more of the cast.
Parker Posey (“Lost in Space”), Stephen McKinley Henderson (Dune), Denis Ménochet (The French Dispatch), Hayley Squires (In the Earth), Michael Gandolfini (The Many Saints of Newark) and Zoe Lister-Jones (the director of The Craft: Legacy) have joined a cast that also includes Nathan Lane (“Penny Dreadful: City of Angels”), Patti LuPone (“Hollywood”), Amy Ryan (Only Murders in the Building), and Kylie Rogers (“Yellowstone”).
Deadline’s report notes that the film is being described as “an intimate, decades-spanning portrait of one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time.”
A24 will produce and finance the film, penned by Aster.
Aster and Lars Knudsen are producing for Square Peg.
Aster had teased last year that his next movie would be a “nightmare comedy,” you may recall, but it’s possible he was referring to an entirely different project from Disappointment Blvd.
