Story highlights

Disappointment Blvd. would be Phoenix's first project after his Joker, as his previously-announced role as Napoleon in Ridley Scott's Kitbag is likely to film afterward.

Joaquin Phoenix has signed his first project since winning an Oscar for work in 'Joker'.

The actor has set his next project with 'Disappointment Blvd', writer-director Ari Aster's follow-up to his acclaimed horror films 'Hereditary' and 'Midsommar'. A24 will release the film, reuniting with Aster after his first two projects.

According to Deadline, Disappointment Blvd. would be Phoenix's first project after his Joker, as his previously-announced role as Napoleon in Ridley Scott's Kitbag is likely to film afterward. Phoenix completed filming on director Mike Mills' upcoming C'mon C'mon, another A24 joint, ahead of last year's Oscars.

Disappointment Blvd. is described as "an intimate, decades-spanning portrait of one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time." Further details are being kept under wraps, but that description sounds like a departure from the genre fare of Aster's last two films.

He previously described his next project as a "nightmare comedy" that would be four hours long, though it's unclear if he was referring to the same movie.
