Joker: Alec Baldwin Joins Cast For Joker Origin Film From Todd Phillips

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Alec Baldwin is the latest name to join the cast of Warner Bros. and DC Films Joker origin film from Todd Phillips.


The film will be an origin story of The Joker, with the studio describing the film as “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”


The project has been long reported about, since way back in August of last year it was reported that Todd Philips and Scott Silver were co-writing the script, with Philips also attached to direct and serve as producer. Emma Tillinger Koskoff will be working as a producer on the project and Richard Baratta is serving as executive producer.


While Warner Bros. haven’t confirmed what role Baldwin (whose recent credits include Mission: Impossible – Fallout and BlacKkKlansman) will be playing, sources tell Deadline that he could potentially be set to play the role of Thomas Wayne, Bruce’s father.


Alec Baldwin joins a cast that includes Joaquin PhoenixZazie BeetzRobert De Niro, Frances Conroy and Marc Maron.


Joker is set to commence production in New York this coming September and is being scheduled for cinematic release on the 4th October 2019.
