JOKER Press Release Reveals More Casting Additions; GOTG Star Bradley Cooper Listed As Producer

Joker has been shooting for a few days now but following the release of that first official look at Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, we have a full cast and crew list which includes some big surprises...

Warner Bros. has announced that principal photography has begun on Joker in a movie the studio describes as revolving around "the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. [Todd] Phillips' exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale." 

In terms of the cast, a full list has now been revealed and that includes Robert DeNiro (Taxi Driver), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Bill Camp (Red Sparrow), Frances Conroy (Castle Rock), Brett Cullen (Narcos), Glenn Fleshler (Billions), Douglas Hodge (Penny Dreadful), Marc Maron (GLOW), Josh Pais (Motherless Brooklyn), and Shea Whigham (Kong: Skull Island). Needless to say, that's quite an ensemble.
 

Behind the scenes, Joker is being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and longtime Martin Scorsese producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It is executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner and Bruce Berman. Phillips is joined by director of photography Lawrence Sher (The Hangover), production designer Mark Friedberg (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), editor Jeff Groth (The Hangover), and Oscar-winning costume designer Mark Bridges (The Artist). 
 
Interestingly, the only mention of DC in the press release is a throwaway mention that the screenplay is "based on characters from DC." Are you excited for Joker? Share your thoughts with us down below.
