Warner Bros. Has officially greenlit the “Joker Origin” film starring Joaquin Phoenix. The film will center around the rise of Batman’s arch nemesis and will have a modest budget of $55mil. This incarnation will be a dark crime drama that will operate outside of the DCEU where Jared Leto will continue to play the clown prince of Gotham.

“The Joker” will be directed by Todd Phillips [The Hangover] who will also be co-writing the film with Scott Silver best known for [8-mile.]

Not much is known about the plot for the upcoming drama. But Phillips dropped a tidbit about the direction he is aiming for:

“[An] exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
