Phoenix In Talks For “Sisters Brothers”

Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to co-star with John C. Reilly in “Dheepan” director Jacques Audiard’s indie drama “The Sisters Brothers” based on the Patrick DeWitt novel.

Set in Oregon in 1851, the story follows two brothers – Eli and Charlie Sisters – hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss. Filming is slated to start sometime this summer.

Reilly optioned the rights to the book and will produce alongside Michael De Luca.
