BossLogic Imagines Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker and It's Awesome

It’s official: Joaquin Phoenix to play The Joker in new origin film

Warner Bros.is moving forward with a Joker solo film starring Joaquin Phoenix from director Todd Phillips and producer Martin Scorsese, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Shooting reportedly starts in September in NY. No further casting has been announced but it's being described as an "exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale". "But I will say that I don't think you can equate this movie with some of those other movies that you've talked about". "And so it just has happened that those things have never come together for a bigger movie but I'm not opposed to any genre or any size of film", Phoenix explained. The film will be produced by Emma Tillinger Koskoff and executive produced by Richard Baratta and begins production later this year.

All doubt has now disappeared after bosses at Warner Bros. signed a contract with Phoenix for the lead role in the DC Comics picture. Regardless of his involvement or lack thereof, Warner Bros.is experimenting with a lower budget for this kind of film, which will be more of a "crime drama" than a comic book movie, with a roughly $55 million figure.
