Are you interested to see what Phoenix does with the role of the Joker in a new film?

Joaquin Phoenix's Joker Origin Movie a Go at Warner Bros. And, if this art is anywhere close to what he looks like as The Joker, it could be visually awesome. He's developed a reputation because his works are, quite simply, excellent time after time. Phoenix had been rumored to have the lead role for months, but played coy about whether or not he was aware of the part.

This standalone project is just one of the Joker-related movies that DC now has in production. This will give Warner Bros. another chance to redeem itself following the disappointing Justice League and Suicide Squad films; the latter of which was widely criticized for its handling of Jared Leto's Joker.

Todd Phillips, most well known for his comedies including Old School, Starsky & Hutch and The Hangover, is lined up to direct.

Scott Silver will join Phillips as a co-writer on the film, which will delve into what it took for the Joker to become a mastermind criminal.

Production on the movie, which doesn't have an official title just yet, is set to begin in September. The movie will be darker and more experimental than other comic book superhero movies and will have a much lower budget at around $55 million.

A release date hasn't yet been announced, but shooting will begin in September in NY.

The film, which is not connected to the DC Extended Universe, does not yet have a release date. It's also said to be taking inspiration from Martin Scorsese's The King of Comedy.

Look, we get it: making movies is a tough business.
