Warner Bros. has assigned an official release date to the Joker origin movie.
The standalone DC film will hit the big screen on October 4th, 2019.
Todd Phillips is directing, while Joaquin Phoenix will star in the titular role.
Simply entitled Joker, the film is described 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 also co-wrote the script with Scott Silver.
Joker has been given a budget of $55-Million and will begin production later this year. The movie is meant to be darker and more experimental in tone and content, which is described as being akin to a crime drama. Phoenix is currently the only actor attached to the project at this time.
Emma Tillinger Koskoff will produce Joker, with Richard Baratta executive producing.
Be sure to mark your calendars accordingly!
