Tommy Wiseau Wants Joaquin Phoenix's Role In The Joker Origin Film

Joaquin Phoenix In Talks to Play The Joker In DC/Warner Bros. Standalone Movie Joaquin Phoenix circling The Joker role in origins film
Freda Brock | 10 February, 2018, 22:55

Responding to a tweet from Variety announcing three-time Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix's candidacy for the role in director Todd Phillips' standalone Joker origin movie, Wiseau instructed Phillips to direct message him.

While studio negotiations are not yet underway, Phillips has made it clear that Phoenix is the top choice to star and sources now tell Variety that, after thinking it over, Phoenix has agreed to the role.

The Joker was most recently played by Jared Leto in Suicide Squad.

An unlikely report surfaced in 2017 about Batman's arch-nemesis The Joker starring in his own film, separate from the existing series of DC Comics films, with Martin Scorsese on board as a producer and Leonardo DiCaprio in line to star.

Kim Jong Un invites South Korean President Moon to Pyongyang
Reporters who were there said both actors were eventually kicked out of the Olympic opening ceremony in PyeongChang. It turns out, the two impersonators were dressed as President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.

It was a year ago when Warner Bros. and DC notified the industry that they were starting a Joker origin film with Phillips as director, Martin Scorsese as the producer and Scott Silver writing the screenplay.

Leto is likely to reprise his role in Suicide Squad 2, but will not be featured in this film. Will Joaquin Phoenix follow through with the role?

The film would be the first in a new strain of DC Comic films, giving the studio a chance to expand their repertoire and create unique narratives and character pieces that are not a part of their current cinematic universe. Sources are saying that Phillips" story will take place in the "80s and will take the form of a gritty crime drama, rather than your typical comic-book movie. He was previously in the frame for the role of Lex Luthor in another DC movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which ultimately went to Jesse Eisenberg, and was in talks to play Marvel superhero Doctor Strange, who was played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Phoenix now stars in the 2018 flick "Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot".
