Last month, we revealed that Warners Bros. was moving quickly with their Joker origin film set in the eighties from writer-director Todd Phillips. Setting their sights on getting cameras rolling this September in New York City.
THR now confirms our reporting and add that Joaquin Phoenix has signed-on to play the Joker.
A release date has yet to be announced by the studio but we suspect an announcement at Comic-Con is a good bet.
