Hangover Director Todd Phillips Working on Joker Origin Film

Hangover Director Todd Phillips Working on Joker Origin Film
Rumors have been swirling about a possible Joker origin film being in the works. According to reports,  "The Hangover" director Todd Phillips is currently in talks to direct and co-write the film. It is also said that Martin Scorcese could be involved with the project as well.  

Origin films have become quite popular in recent years and the Joker would be perfect for such a platform. The character has had many different versions of his back story told, so it will be interesting to see what the newest iteration of that will become. 

Scott Silver is said to be co-writing with Phillips, and the film is said to take place in the 1980s with a grittier feel than most comic book films.

The Joker was most recently portrayed by Jared Leto in "Suicide Squad" and most likely, he will reprise that role for "Suicide Squad 2".
