According to Deadline, the film will be based on the Joker's origin's feature by Todd Phillips' who co-wrote the film alongside The Fighter's Scott Silver.

The Joker movie has been a bit of an enigma amongst DC Comics fans, ever since it was first announced in September of previous year. The Clown Prince of Crime is the most popular and admired comic book villain of all time. The film will be produced by Emma Tillinger Koskoff and executive produced by Richard Baratta and begins production later this year.

The budget for the film is also in the $55 million range, which is significantly lower than the usual blockbuster superhero flick - so could we about to see a more restrained, dare we say, "real" interpretation of The Joker?

"I don't know... it could be an interesting character".

"I see [a superhero movie] as any other movie", Phoenix continued. With shades of the classic Hitchcock character Norman Bates, the future Joker is more isolated and tortured even before suffering sudden loss after accepting the incredible responsibility of caring for his ailing mother alone.

Jared Leto is another incredible actor who's been lucky enough to play the Joker. If you have the ability to transcend the genre, then that's what you want to do.

The Joker is known for both his wit and creative cruelty, so it could be Joaquin Phoenix's turn to show off his villainous side playing the well-known comic book character.

Joaquin's Joker film could be released as early as 2019.
