When River Phoenix died of a drug overdose in front of the Viper Room, he was in the process of making a movie called Dark Blood. For 18 years that movie has stayed on the shelves, but the director of the movie says he is going to finish it and will release it. At the time River died, the director says he hid it because he thought people would try and destroy it or take it. Apparently the material has been re-edited and Joaquin Phoenix has been asked to do any necessary voiceovers. The film should be released next year.

For those of you who are too young to remember River, and only know his brother Joaquin, you need to take a weekend and watch some River Phoenix movies. Running On Empty is a great one and Stand By Me. My Own Private Idaho. I have also always liked Little Nikita and Sneakers too. hope this last release makes him look good.
