‘Todd Phillips ‘Joker’ origins feature has been greenlit by Warner Bros. and will go before the cameras in September. The plan is for the pic to be released under a new DC banner. Warner Bros, which outside of Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad, hit a wall with Justice League last fall which significantly underperformed.
The hope is that the brand will be revived with Phillips’ gritty reported $55M production which is set in the ’80s. That said, Warner Bros. is still developing another Joker movie with Jared Leto in the role.’
