The film centres on the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen.  Phillips’ exploration of Arthur, a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

Other cast members include:  Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Bill Camp (Molly’s Game), Brett Cullen (Narcos), Glenn Fleshler (Barry), Douglas Hodge (Penny Dreadful) and Marc Maron (GLOW).

Joker is scheduled for release in October 2019.
