Joaquin Phoenix has joined the cast of the drama Two Lovers, with James Gray directing. According to Variety, this will be the third time the two of them have teamed up for a project.

The film revolves around a Brooklyn man who has to choose between marrying a family friend that his parents both love and running off with a fiery new neighbor that he has fallen patiently in love with. The film is being financed by 2929 Productions, with Gwyneth Paltrow set to co-star opposite Phoenix.

2929 Productions' Todd Wagner stated, "This is a reunion on several levels that feels as inspiring as the project itself." A set start date has not yet been set.
