Producers for the untitled movie include Chelsea Barnard, Lila Yacoub, and Andrea Longacre-White. Production is expected to begin this fall.

The movie will serve as Phoenix’s first role post his already critically acclaimed performance in Joker, which arrives in theaters on October 4. Director Todd Phillips’ original, standalone origin story Joker explores the world of—and according to—Arthur Fleck. Indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, Arthur is a man facing the cruelty and outright scorn of society, along with the indifference of a system that allows him to spiral from vulnerability into depravity. A clown-for-hire by day, he strives to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds that the joke always seems to be on him. He’s out of tune with everyone around him, as evidenced by his uncontrollable, inappropriate laughter, which gains momentum as he attempts to contain it, exposing him to further ridicule—and even violence.
