A pretty crazy bit of news this week: we might get to see the very last movie River Phoenix was shooting when he died of a suspected drug overdose in front of a nightclub in Los Angeles in 1993, during production. The movie is called Dark Blood and the director, George Sluizer, has recently announced that the movie will be completed in time for a 2012 release. To supplement the footage Sluizer plans on asking Joaquin Phoenix to overdub his brother’s voice, as reported in The Hollywood Reporter. Starring alongside Phoenix are Jonathan Pryce and Judy Davis.
