Forget those reports that Joaquin Phoenix will help with the re-release of his brother River Phoenix's last film. According to Deadline's Nikki Finke, director George Sluizer's claims that Joaquin is planning to overdub River's voice came as news to the Phoenix family. "Joaquin Phoenix and his family have not been in communication with the director nor will they participate in any way," a family spokesperson says. River died at the far-too-young age of 23 from a drug overdose in 1993.
