Todd Philips

Todd Philips (War DogsThe Hangover) delivers a new standalone origin story for the clown with the cracked smile. Joaquin Phoenix plays Joker as a lightning rod for a sick world. A clown-for-hire by day, he spends nights as a struggling stand up comic. But when he is pushed too far, Joker is ready to regurgitate Gotham City’s hate.

Drawing upon the work of Martin Scorsese – especially The King of Comedy and Taxi Driver – Philips has drawn the talents of Robert de Niro himself, as well as a Zazie Beetz as antagonists for this distinctly 21st century antihero.
