Phoenix and Ruffalo Make Way for ‘Reservation Road’


Variety reports that Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Ruffalo are set to star in Reservation Road for Focus Features and Hotel Rwanda director Terry George.

The film is an adaptation of John Burnham Shwartz’s novel which tells the story of two fathers on opposite sides of a hit-and-run: The Ruffalo character kills Phoenix’s son and flees. As the grieving father seeks revenge, the tragedy wears on both men in unexpected ways. Schwartz wrote the screenplay, and George polished it.

The drama will shoot this fall.
