Zazie Beetz has entered negotiations to star in Joker, the upcoming DC Film centred around the origins of one of the world's most iconic supervillains.
Todd Phillips is directing the stand-alone origin project from Warner Bros., while Joaquin Phoenix is portraying the film's titular character. The movie is moderately budgeted and darker than the studio’s other DC movies. It's described as more of a dark character study than a crime thriller.
Phillips co-wrote the film's script with Scott Silver.
Should the deal be finalized, Beetz would play a single mother who catches the interest of the future Clown Prince Of Crime. There are no official plot details available at this time.
Joker is due to begin shooting in September in New York.
The flick is slated for release on October 4th, 2019.
