Zazie Beetz in Talks to Join Joaquin Phoenix in ‘Joker’ Movie


That is, if it keeps that release date!

Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie gets a title and release date

If the deal is made, Beetz will play a single mother who catches the interest of the man who will become the "clown prince of crime". I'm still not sure how Phoenix fits with Phillips; I can't conceive of them making any movie together, much less a movie about the freaking Joker, but if it really is a character study about a insane criminal, then Phoenix is smart casting.

Yes, I did say it, I did say it. "You cannot point at people, and you can't do this to people". According to Page Six , the drama off-camera when Goldberg and Pirro ran into each backstage.

Reports of Phillips' Joker origin film first surfaced in August 2017 when it was described as "a gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime film" set in early 1980s Gotham City. Phillips and Scott Silver (8 Mile) are responsible for the screenplay. Filming begins in the fall on the pic, which is expected to be released under a new DC banner.

What's more, the studio is also revealing the title for the Batman universe film, which was previously known as simply Joaquin Phoenix's Joker movie. Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy are reportedly where the project is drawing its inspiration from. But Warner sure we'll like one anyway. Hey, if you're gonna do that, then Joaquin Phoenix is the ideal man to play the role. Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger - who won an Oscar for his take in "The Dark Knight" - are among the many actors to bring the character to life.

Thursday caps off a week in which Coats, who leads the United States intelligence community, has seemed at odds with Trump. Had Trump asked him 'how that ought to be conducted, I would have suggested a different way, but that's not my role.

DC fans weren't exactly happy with the direction that Jared Leto took the Joker. Phoenix's film is obviously getting fast-tracked and reportedly has a $55 million budget and will start filming in September in NY.
