OREANDA-NEWS The new film about DC character Joker with Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role will be very different from the original plot of the comic strip about the villain, told the Empire, director and scriptwriter of the film Todd Phillips.

Todd said this idea could piss people off. However, the creators of the film wanted to show how a person like Joker could have appeared on the screen.

He also called Joaquin Phoenix a great actor. His picture hung over the computer while working on the script.

In the US, the premiere of the film will come out on October 4, 2019. In the Russian rental film will be released a day earlier.
