Casey Affleck to Direct Joaquin Phoenix’s Hard Day’s Night

Not Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon.

With Joaquin Phoenix now retired from acting and embarking on a massively anticipated hip-hop career, it would simply be a crime if someone weren't recording his every move on film. Thankfully, famed documentarian Casey Affleck has officially taken up the task and has agreed to shoot a movie on his stupid friend's new endeavor. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Phoenix's album will be produced by Sean Combs (we are dubious), which would seem to be quite a coup for a former box-office draw who now apparently thinks he's Andy Kaufman.
