It was reported recently that DC is developing two Joker-focused movies. One of the new movies is a film that involves both the Joker and Harley Quinn. Jared Leto and Margot Robbie who portrayed the two characters respectively in Suicide Squad will be returning for this movie. It’s the new standalone origin movie that’s getting a lot of interest from fans these days. Word on the street is that the Joker origin movie script will soon be turned in.
Variety reporter Justin Kroll reports that the Joker origin movie project is moving forward quickly and that the script is likely going to be turned in by next week. The film is yet to be officially announced by DC but this is a good sign that shooting could begin next year.
There are some big names attached to this project. Reports suggest that the iconic filmmaker Martin Scorsese is going to produce this movie with Todd Phillips likely to be in the director’s chair.
Some reports even suggest that Leonardo DiCaprio might get the lead role. Given his history of working with Scorsese, this certainly can’t be ruled out.
More information about this project will likely be confirmed down the line. This is one that fans will anxiously be waiting for.
