Joker is getting his own movie!

Joker is getting his own movie and Martin Scorsese is producing… cool is that!

The Todd Phillips directed film is yet to be cast but Deadline are reporting htat the project is in the very early stages of development, but Todd Phillips and Scott Silver writers of The Hangover and 8 Mile respectively are penning an original script. The film is said to pay homage to 1980’s Scorsese films, with a gritty feel being said to be attached to the movie, kind of like a Taxi Driver, Raging Bull kind of feel. We’re really intrigued as to what a Phillips/Scorsese film can bring to the DC Universe and the Joker character and we’re expecting big things.
