In return, if Scorsese can secure DiCaprio, it's likely that he will have found a new home for his future, more personal, films, something that the financial failure of the $50 million "Silence" had left him in need of. Jared Leto is said to be returning as Joker for the DCEU movies Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens and a Harley Quinn and Joker spinoff flick.
Yeah, he is. Luckily, Warner Bros. doesn't actually want him to play the Joker.
According to the initial scoop from Deadline, Todd Phillips ("The Hangover") will be directing the film, cowriting the script with Scott Silver ("8 Mile"), and producing alongside Scorsese.
FDA Approves First "Living Drug" To Treat Childhood Leukemia Kymriah is intended for people with B-cell ALL whose cancer hasn't responded to or has returned after treatment, the FDA said. The therapy was evaluated in clinical testing involving 63 children and young adults with relapsed or refractory B-cell ALL.
This film, the details of which are still emerging, would be separate from the DC Extended Universe, which features its own version of the Jester of Genocide, played by a green-haired Jared Leto.
It would be similar, then, to DC and Warner Bros.' ambitions on their next standalone project, "The Batman", helmed by Matt Reeves, who realized success behind the recent "Planet of the Apes" trilogy.
While the directorial duties appear to be in order, there is no current offer to DiCaprio. "The chances of landing DiCaprio could be slim to none", Kim Masters and Borys Kit wrote in their original report. Starting with things like the attempt to push Wonder Woman at the 2018 Oscars, the goal is for WB's DC fare to eventually differentiate itself from other superhero franchises out there by offering serious "awards-worthy" films in the vein of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight saga. Scorsese calls this new take on the joker "super dark" and "real".
If this new rumor is true, it could make the non-DCEU Joker movie a must-see product for both comic book fans and regular movie viewers. Just kidding! There are only a thousand superhero films now in the works.
