Phoenix will star in the film, portraying Napoleon Bonaparte himself. As of right now, the film will head into the production stage sometime next year.

Kitbag has been described as being a personal look into the origin on Napoleon, following his ruthless climb to emperor. The film will also focus on Napoleon’s relationship with both his wife, and his genuine love, Josephine. The title for the film comes from an old military saying: “There is a general’s staff hidden in every soldier’s kitbag.”
