Gladiator's Ridley Scott and Joaquin Phoenix to re-team for Napoleon epic

AgenciesRidley Scott will direct the period feature titled'Kitbag, which will see the'Joker actor play the French military leader and emperor

Before moving into motion pictures, the Marx Brothers wove Napoleon into their 1924 Broadway revue; naturally, the part was played by Groucho, who offered such updates on his military progress as "The Russians are in full retreat, and I'm right in front of them". After that, he might be starting to work on Kitbag starring Academy Award actor Joaquin Phoenix.

The outlet shares the film's title stems from the saying, "There is a general's staff hidden in every soldier's kitbag".

Recently only, Ridley Scott has finished shooting his next film, The Last Duel set at 20th Century Studios, in Ireland, while this new development has come forward at the same time.

Russell County has 154 Positive Cases of COVID-19

AgenciesRidley Scott (R) will direct the period feature, titled "Kitbag", which will see the "Joker" actor play the French military leader and emperor.

Though no official start dates have been announced, it's believed that Scott will kick off production on Kitbag immediately after wrapping Gucci, the Lady Gaga-featuring drama that's now set to shoot in in Italy in March.

Sources of the publication said that the plot of the tape will be built around the life of Napoleon before he became emperor, his desire for power, uneasy relations with his wife and Josephine's only true love, writes "Moscow 24"... Deadline reports that Scott's intention with the film is to capture the most famous battles of Napoleon, his relentless ambition, and his astounding strategic mind. 'Kitbag' is likely to go into production after the Gucci murder mystery production is wrapped up. That alone will make him very different from numerous better-known depictions of Napoleon in cinema over the years - perhaps thanks to Gillray, he's often been a gag character in English-language productions, from James Tolkan's frisky portrayal in Woody Allen's Love and Death, to Ian Holm's cantankerous take in Terry Gilliam's Time Bandits and Terry Camilleri visiting a water park and going ten-pin bowling in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. His oscar-winning stint as the Joker in last year's Joker (2019), makes his casting a sound decision from the makers part.
