In the upcoming movie, Joaquin will be playing Jesus Christ, while Rooney will play the titular character. The couple previously worked together on the romantic drama Her.
However, Joaquin’s representative said: “They are and have been good friends for quite a long time.”
Rooney was in a relationship for six years with Charlie McDowell but they haven’t been seen together since August.
Mary Magdalene is directed by Garth Davis, who helmed Lion. A release date has not yet been set.
Could love have blossomed between Rooney and Joaquin? What do you think? ~Marriska Fernandes
