After having participated together 22 years ago in the film starring Russell Crowe, Gladiator (Gladiator, 2000), Ridley Scott and Joaquin Phoenix they meet again. The director is in charge of giving directions to the Oscar winner for jokerwho will bring to the big screen Napoleon Bonaparte.
The biopics they are the order of the day and seem to be a fad in the entertainment industry. It even invites viewers to wonder if there are not too many life stories that are taken both to the cinema and to the platforms.
The truth is that the filming is in the process of development and photos were published through social networks in which we can see Phoenix characterized as Napoleon. Initially, it transpired that the film was going to be called kit bag, in reference to the English saying “There is a general’s staff hidden in every soldier’s kitbag”, which in Spanish translates as: “There is a general’s staff hidden in the backpack of each soldier”. But finally there was a change and they simply opted for the title Napoleon.
