Deadpool 2’s Zazie Beetz in Talks to Board Joker Origin Movie

Zazie Beetz Deadpool 2

Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie gets a title and release date

The script, co-penned by Phillips and Scott Silver, is more of a dark character study than a goofy Jared Leto vomit act set to film. Details about the film are still largely being kept under wraps, but THR says that if Beetz officially signs on, she "would play a single mother who catches the interest of the man who will become" The Joker. It's unknown what role he would play, but with Martin Scorsese serving as a producer on the film, it's likely the filmmaker helped promote the project to his former collaborator.

Warner Bros. will release Joker in just over a year, on October 4, 2019. Learn about the Zazie Beetz Joker casting below. The studio's standalone picture, which is separate from their current big-screen run of the DC Cinematic Universe, stars Joaquin Phoenix in the title role as the Clown Prince of Crime.

It's got a name ― "Joker" naturally ― and it's scheduled to open October 4, 2019, Warner Bros. announced Wednesday, per Deadline. But Warner Bros.is sure we'll like one anyway. The DC movie is going to take place under a new banner outside of the DCEU and will be a moderately budgeted affair. The film begins production later this year. With that being said, a lower budget Joker Origin Movie with less pressure seems ideal for Joaquin Phoenix to come in and quietly command the role.
