 Joaquin Phoenix Joker Origin Movie Officially A Go!
After many rumors Warner Brothers has officially announced that they are going to be releasing a Joker Origin movie starring Joaquin Phoenix. How this will line up with Jared Leto's Joker is yet to be seen, but even as a stand alone film if the story is right this could be a hit movie. Check out what we know so far in the news below and let us know know your thoughts on these developments!

Joaquin Phoenix recently finalized his deal to star as the arch-nemesis of Batman and shooting is set to begin in September in New York.

Todd Phillips is directing the film and co-wrote the script, which the studio describes as being an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.” Scott Silver co-wrote the script.

Warners has yet to stake out a release date for the film, which goes against the grain of most comic book movies that have flags planted years in advance. But the Joker stand-alone pic is meant to be different from other comic book superhero movies.

The project's budget is in the $55 million range, significantly lower than the tentpoles that dominate the form. And the stand-alone is meant to be darker and more experimental in tone and content (at least as experimental as a studio can be with established brands such as DC), which is described as being akin to a crime drama.

That said, there is a chance that the movie could be ready for release as early as late 2019, depending on various factors.

That is interesting casting. Kind of seems it wont be connected at all to the dc cinematic universe unless of course they expect us to put on same beer goggles whenever Aflek steps down?
