Martin Scorsese To Produce Joker Origin Film

There are some big names attached to the movie, which is only in the "early stages" of development, Deadline said.

Warner Bros is now targeting a new film focusing on the origins of "The Joker" with Todd Phillips (The Hangover) expected to direct the project with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese serving as an executive producer on the project.

According to Deadline Hollywood, which first reported the news, Martin Scorsese will produce the Joker film alongside Phillips. What's more, this origin story isn't exactly going to tie in to any other DC property now out, so don't expect to see calls to Heath Ledger's, Jack Nicholson's, or (*shudder*) Jared Leto's Jokers. But this Joker-Harley Quinn film is expected to fit into the group of the more traditional DC movies, such as "Justice League" and "Wonder Woman".

Deadline also notes that the as-yet-untitled "Joker" movie will take place in the early 1980s, and its gritty Gotham City setting will be reminiscent of early Scorsese films like "Mean Streets" and "Taxi Driver".


DiCaprio must be playing the joker? Before that, Heath Ledger won a posthumous Oscar for bringing corrupt gusto to the role in 2008′s "The Dark Knight".

Because it is supposedly an origin story, fans immediately vouched for Cameron Monaghan who portrayed Jerome Valeska - a very Joker-like character-in FOX's Gotham. WB wants the picture to feel more like a Scorsese flick rather than a DC movie, giving it a unique feel and wider appeal. The Joker in the Batman comics. The new Joker movie will exist within its own little universe, and so having Jared Leto play the character again would likely confuse audiences. Phillips and Silver have already begun writing part.

But surely one apparent flop like "Suicide Squad" is not enough to stop DC from making most of the character.
