Jodie Comer has confirmed her latest movie role - and it's opposite Joaquin Phoenix in Ridley Scott's movie about Napoleon Bonaparte, Kitbag.
Comer will play Josephine opposite Joaquin Phoenix's Napoleon Bonaparte in the historical drama about the military leader and emperor.
In an interview with Variety, Comer said "I just jumped at the chance to work with Ridley and his team again and the idea of working with Joaquin, who’s someone who I hugely admire. I think for me, what I'm learning is... you learn and you grow so much by being and working with the people that you’re working alongside. And I just think having that opportunity - I'm so excited to delve into that world."
Kitbag will be Comer's second collaboration with Scott following The Last Duel, which arrives in theaters October 15. The historical drama movie, which co-stars Matt Damon and Adam Driver, tells the story of the last officially recognized judicial duel fought in France.
The film is an original and personal look at Napoleon’s origins and his swift, ruthless climb to emperor, viewed through the prism of his addictive and often volatile relationship with his wife and one true love, Josephine. The intention of the film is to capture Napoleon’s famous battles, relentless ambition and astounding strategic mind as an extraordinary military leader and war visionary.
