Joaquin Phoenix will be the latest actor to play the Clown Prince of Crime, and now we have a better idea of what that could looks like.
But now Phoenix has reportedly finalized his deal to play Joker in this untitled standalone, which Phillips-the filmmaker behind The Hangover trilogy and the crime film War Dogs-will direct from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver.
Will it be The Joker narrating his own origin to the camera, giving Phoenix most of the film to play outside of any makeup and create a dramatic story that won't feature any insane plots or superhero setpieces? Numerous reports about the project have suggested that it will be the first in a line of standalone DC movies, which exist outside of the DC Extended Universe continuity. However, Scorsese's producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff is still aboard here with Richard Baratta as EP.
"I don't know... it could be an interesting character". "So I wouldn't say, hands down, no - I wouldn't do that kind of movie".

But Germany, Europe's biggest economy, spends just 1.24 percent of GDP on defence, compared with 3.5 percent for the US. Over the weekend, Trump will take a rest stop at one of the two Trump-owned golf courses in Scotland.
The Joker is known for both his wit and creative cruelty, so it could be Joaquin Phoenix's turn to show off his villainous side playing the well-known comic book character.
DC Entertainment's Joker origin film is officially greenlit, with a tentative starting shoot day this fall.
