Filmmaker Todd Phillips has posted a new camera test video which seemingly reveals Joaquin Phoenix’s full make-up in the upcoming “Joker” movie at Warner Bros. Pictures. The appearance goes straight for a circus clown look to differentiate itself from other recent on-screen The Jokers.
The standalone story is said to revolve around “the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. [Todd] Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
The full main cast includes Phoenix, Robert DeNiro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
Phillips, Bradley Cooper and Emma Tillinger Koskoff are producing and “Joker” is targeting an October 4th 2019 release.
