Leonardo Dicaprio and Joaquin Phoenix together for the first time? Leo and Paul finally working together? Hear me out.

With the streaming revolution and the unlikelihood of "Licorice Pizza" being a box office hit, a big star will probably be a must if he wants another $25 - $40 million budget where he gets full creative control. After the success of "Joker" Joaquin is an even bigger name than he was when IV came out. Leo regrets passing on Boogie Nights and he and Joaquin go way back to coming up together as child actors, yet they've never worked together before. Paul loves to do movies about families, but it's usually the father son dynamic, never brothers. This could be new territory. Also, if he casts these two, I could see studios allowing the film a 90 day theatrical only window before going to streaming. Also, this might be his last shot at another 70mm epic, if that's what he wants to do, and the star power of Leo and Joaquin would certainly give him that. Emmanuel Lubezki as cinematographer is someone on his wish list as well. Or maybe Darius Khondji will be the DP again. But, it's time for him to strike while the iron is hot.

What are your thoughts on what his next film will be like? Could he do something completely different and focus on a woman with a cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Tiffany Hadish and Katherine Waterston? Could he re-team with old favorites like Julianne Moore and William H. Macy? Another period piece, or finally something modern?

He's expressed interest in the next Ant-Man.

There's also a rumored Vincent Froio-led Grand Moff Tarkin prequel.

"Watched this at the first public screening in 70mm with the Haim sisters and JJ Abrams sitting a row behind me 😱. Somehow this did not feel like a PT Anderson film but yet it felt so similar at the same time. I'm really curious to see what other people think about it. It felt like a straight up John Hughes style film, with a bit of PT Anderson and Spielberg thrown in. In a way, I think it's his most mainstream film, and I find it interesting he mentioned after the screening this was an "easier" project for him to work on, and he was working on something longer and he started to have trouble on it, so he went back to this idea which he has had for 20 years and decided to make it with his friends at "home". So many celebrities kids are in this movie it gets kinda overloaded. I'll be watching it again later this week, so I'll be thinking more about this. But don't expect this to be anything like his other films in terms of genre. Regency fox Westwood."


^^^ This is the first confirmation that there's a new screenplay he's working on and it comes from Paul himself! I wonder if the "something longer" will be akin to Magnolia? Or maybe like There Will Be Blood and The Master? I'm excited.

There's only been one Q&A so far and he didn't mention anything like that.
