Joker Movie Adds Robert De Niro & Zazie Beetz

Robert De Niro is going where he's never gone before: The world of superheroes - or make that, supervillains.

Emma Tillinger Koskoff is producing the WB/Village Roadshow Joker movie, which Richard Baratta is exec producing. Having came to prominence in the nineteen seventies, performances like Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, and The Deer Hunter quickly solidified De Niro as one of Hollywood's most engaging young talents.

De Niro would reportedly star in the Joker (Phoenix) origin story as a talk show host who is instrumental in the iconic villain's descent into madness.

Sources say De Niro would be portraying a talk-show host who plays a part in driving Phoenix's character to go mad and become the Clown Prince of Crime.

Rumors of De Niro's involvement surfaced earlier in the year, but this marks confirmation of his interest.

Officially announced at the beginning of July and set for October 4, 2019, the film will feature Phoenix taking on a darker, more sinister depiction of the green-haired DC villain.

De Niro recently wrapped production on Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman" opposite Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. We recently reported that Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) is in talks for the movie as well. Remember, Scorsese himself is serving as an executive producer of this film; Scott Silver (8 Mile) co-wrote the screenplay with Todd Phillips (The Hangover), who is directing this standalone movie. Filming begins in the fall on the pic, which is expected to be released under a new DC banner.
