Joaquin Phoenix in Talks to Star in The Joker Standalone Film (Report)

Joaquin Phoenix might be gearing up to play the Joker in an upcoming movie!

Warner Bros. has announced that Todd Phillips is on board to co-write and direct a standalone movie about the villain – and the 43-year-old actor is the first choice to play the Clown Prince of Crime, Variety reports.

The potential Joaquin movie would have nothing to do with the DC universe Joker film that is also currently in the works starring Jared Leto, after he played the villain in the 2016 film Suicide Squad.

The source also reports that the potential film will take place in the ’80s and will have grittier look at crime in Gotham.

WB hasn’t commented on the reports yet.
