Joaquin Phoenix's Joker Origin Movie Gets Greenlight! | Joaquin Phoenix, Movies, Todd Phillips

The film has been in development for some time, with Phoenix reportedly in talks for months.

BossLogic recently shared a new piece on their social media account, in celebration of Phoenix officially signing on for the role.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the greenlight. A recent article confirmed just as much, and that the label of standalone DC films could be dubbed "DC Dark" or "DC Black".

Martin Scorsese was previously attached to the movie as a producer but is now reportedly not involved, with Scorsese's producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff on board with Richard Baratta.

"I don't know...it could be an interesting character, I don't know", Phoenix told Fandango in April, adding that he wouldn't be opposed to comic book movies if the conditions were right. "I wouldn't say... 'I won't do Westerns.' It depends on what it is". If you have the ability to transcend the genre, then that's what you want to do.

This standalone project is just one of the Joker-related movies that DC now has in production. According to insiders, the Oscar-winner will not only will be back for the "Suicide Squad" sequel, Warner Bros.is also developing his own standalone movie that will be separate from Phoenix's Joker project.

The Joker is known for both his wit and creative cruelty, so it could be Joaquin Phoenix's turn to show off his villainous side playing the well-known comic book character.

No official release date has been set, but THR claims the film could be in theaters by late 2019.
