JOKER ORIGIN FILM CONFIRMED, JOAQUIN PHOENIX DEFINIITELY STARRING





I’m personally getting rather bored with the Joker, but obviously Warner Bros. thinks that many have the opposite opinion, because in addition to a planned solo movie for Jared Leto’s iteration of The Joker [who I thought was dreadful in the role, but never mind], the planned Joker origin story with Todd Phillips [ummm, not sure about that one]  in the director’s chair and Joaquin Phoenix [now he should be great] on board to play the Clown Prince of Crime has just been officially confirmed by ‘THR’.

The film will reportedly be made on a $55 million production budget, with shooting set to begin in New York this coming September. It will apparently be:

“A crime drama that will be darker and more experimental in tone and content, an exploration of a man disregarded by society that is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”

Scott Silver has co-written the script with Phillips.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
