Joaquin Phoenix and adorable young co-star continue to film untitled Mike Mills project in New York City inside Central Park.

He and the young actor sat on top of Umpire Rock filming a sweet moment as they leaned heads together gazing into the distance.

In the untitled Mike Mills film, the actor plays a documentary filmmaker who is a mentor to a kid but it remains unclear if the child is related to him in the movie.

He was dressed in a North Face snow jacket, black pants, and black boots braving the snowy weather in New York City as the youngster wore a grey beanie, green puffer jacket, blue jeans, and black North Face boots.

He looked to be in a great mood after recently receiving a Golden Globe nomination for his eery portrayal of The Joker.

Joaquin’s version of The Joker smashed records and has received four Golden Globe nominations including Best Drama, Best Actor, Best Original Score, and Best Director, but talks for a sequel are not yet concrete, this according to the movie’s producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff.

She told Entertainment Tonight — “I’ve not been involved in any conversations,” she said, “I would think that I would be one of the first to know.”

If there were solid talks, she added — “I would love to see anything that Todd…and Joaquin come up with for Joker 2. If they want to do it and they want me to come along for the ride, I’m there.”
