An accountant by profession, but my knack for Movies and Gaming has never left the soul. Consider myself to be an old soul when it comes to playing games.I have a huge knack for fast cars and that is why i love Forza and NFS series. However i like to take out my frustration by killing zombies in Dying Light. A die heart fan of Call of Duty franchise. Gladiator & The Shawshank Redemption are eternal love and these are just the tip of the iceberg.
After Heath Ledger’s death and how great the Joker became. People started to imagine different but awesome actors, in the role of the crazy clown, if a Joker movie was to be made once again. There were mixed opinions about the awesome Jared Leto being in the role of Joker. Many did say that his role in the Suicide Squad was very small to be making any judgment. Putting everything aside, one of the greatest and most epic actor on the planet earth Joaquin Phoenix is going to be the new Joker in the Joker Origin Movie.
This news has come out with a bang after Joaquin’s deal with Warner Bros officially finalized. This stand-alone Joker Origin Movie is being directed by Todd Phillips the director behind the Hangover and War Dogs. Todd Phillips has also co-written the script along with Scott Silver.
The studio is describing the movie as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study but also a broader cautionary tale.” This Joker Origin Movie is going to have a very different take from any other comic book adaptation.
This stand-alone Joker film is going to be a darker presentation with no bounds. With an excellent method actor like Joaquin Pheonix, there should be no bounds, let him play. Budget allocated for the film is around $55 million.
An extra oomph in all this mixture is none other than Martin Scorsese, who is going to be the executive producer of the film. The shooting of the movie is said to begin in September, with the release date yet to be finalized.
There are going to be two more stand-alone films along with this, one is another Joker movie starring Jared Leto which has no connection with this Joker film. The other movie is the long waited Harley Quinn stand-alone.
