Ill start off answering the question I know is on your mind because it was the first thing that came to mine...
No, Jared Leto will not be the Prince of Darkness in this film. Which will be directed by "The Hangover" director, Todd Phillips. This film will be "a gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime film set in early-’80s Gotham City." Scot Silver, screenwriter from "8 Mile" will assist Phillips with the script. Iconic filmmaker Martin Scorsese, Director of Goodfellas and Shutter Island will be by their side to produce the film.
This is an origin story and they'll create a Joker unlike any we've seen on screen so far. Being able to create a darker crime focused Joker story should be no issue for these guys.
All this was released Exclusively by Deadline.
