Per VARIETY, Joaquin Phoenix’s standalone Joker film will be released on October 4, 2019. Filming starts this September.
Warner Bros. describes JOKER as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society that is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
Todd Phillips is directing, Emma Tillinger Koskoff is producing, and Richard Baratta is executive producing.
Don’t worry BOF’ers, this movie is going to be nothing like what you (or me, initially) expect it to be. Read my op-ed on this topic, I explain.
JOKER may not end up being my cup of tea, but I’m definitely interested in it. We’ll all find out on 10/4/19. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
