THE JOKER Standalone Movie Script Is Reportedly Almost Complete; Could Shoot As Early As Next Year

We first heard about WB's plans for a standalone Joker movie last month, & now we're hearing that the script could be handed in next week. Does this mean that the movie will be ready to shoot in 2018?

It was just a little under a month ago that the news first broke of Warner Bros.' plans for a standalone Batman spinoff based on the early life of The Joker, and now we're hearing that Todd Philips' script (a first draft, presumably) might be ready to turn in as early as next week.

Variety's Justin Kroll shared the update via Twitter, and reckons this news could indicate a 2018 shoot.



The Joker origin movie will not star Suicide Squad's Jared Leto as The Clown Prince of Crime. Philips will also direct, and the project has Martin Scorsese on board as a producer.

Apparently, the intention is to make a "gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime film set in early-’80s Gotham City."
