Actress Zazie Beetz is in talks to star alongside Joaquin Phoenix in Todd Phillips standalone Joker movie.
THR reports the talented actress would play “a single mother who catches the interest of the man who will become the “clown prince of crime.”
Beetz, a series regular in FX’s Atlanta made a huge impression amongst comic book movie lovers this year with her scene stealing role as Domino in Deadpool 2.
It was recently revealed the title for Phillips film would simply be Joker. The film has been described as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
Phillips co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Silver (The Fighter). The film will be produced by Emma Tillinger Koskoff and executive-produced by Richard Baratta.
Production will begin this September, with the film set to hit screens October 4, 2019
