Joaquin Phoenix is the lat­est Joker?

HT City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ac­tor Joaquin Phoenix will be star­ring as Joker in a stand-alone movie.

Ac­cord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter, the 43-year-old ac­tor has signed the deal and the shoot­ing will be­gin in Septem­ber in New York.

Di­rected by Todd Phillip and co-writ­ten by Sil­ver Scot and Phoenix, the film can be de­scribed as, “ex­plo­ration of a man dis­re­garded by so­ci­ety [that] is not only a gritty char­ac­ter study but also a broader cau­tion­ary tale.”

The project is an orig­i­nal film for the Bat­man neme­sis with a bud­get of $55 mil­lion and will be ex­per­i­men­tal and dark in ap­proach.

The re­lease dates aren’t re­vealed yet, but the film might be ready for re­lease in 2019. ANI
