The movie's title is derived from the saying "There's a common's employees hidden in each soldier's kitbag".
Sir Ridley Scott and Joaquin Phoenix are to reunite for new movie "Kitbag". Phoenix will portray the role of the historic emperor.
The film is set at 20th Century Studios, where the filmmaker's production banner Scott Free has its deal. Interestingly, this very French historical figure been played on film by non-French actors twice as often as he has by a fellow countryman, which suggests he inspires a level of cross-cultural fascination that, say, Winston Churchill or General George S Patton do not.
Sources of the publication said that the plot of the tape will be built around the life of Napoleon before he became emperor, his desire for power, uneasy relations with his wife and Josephine's only true love, writes "Moscow 24"... The movie will feature Napoleon's famous battles and the strategies he used to expand his empire.
Scott will direct Kitbag after he directs Lady Gaga in a movie about the murder of Maurizio Gucci. Screenwriter David Scarpa has also been called on board for the development of the script. As to be expected, Kitbag starring Joaquin Phoenix will explore how Napoleon was one of history's most brilliant military minds with a legendary talent for strategy. He performed Commodus in Oscar-winning Finest Image Gladiator (2000), for which he picked up a nomination as Finest Supporting Actor.
