Hot on the heels of today’s Thomas Wayne casting announcement for Todd Phillips’ Joker film for Warner Bros., we get even more casting news for the upcoming film starring Joaquin Phoenix.

This is a Warner Bros. press release as reported on by ComicBook.com:

Principal photography has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures’ Joker, starring Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, alongside Oscar winner Robert De Niro, and directed, produced and co-written by Oscar nominee Todd Phillips.

Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

The film also stars Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Bill Camp (Red SparrowMolly’s Game), Frances Conroy (American Horror StoryCastle Rock), Brett Cullen (42Narcos), Glenn Fleshler (Billions, Barry), Douglas Hodge (Red SparrowPenny Dreadful), Marc Maron (MaronGLOW), Josh Pais (Motherless BrooklynGoing in Style), and Shea Whigham (First ManKong: Skull Island).

Phillips (The Hangover trilogy) directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with writer Scott Silver (The Fighter), based on characters from DC. The film is being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It is executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner and Bruce Berman.

Behind the scenes, Phillips is joined by director of photography Lawrence Sher (upcoming Godzilla: King of the MonstersThe Hangover trilogy), production designer Mark Friedberg (SelmaThe Amazing Spider-Man 2), editor Jeff Groth (War DogsThe Hangover Part III), and Oscar-winning costume designer Mark Bridges (Phantom ThreadThe Artist).
