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.
