Joker: Brett Cullen To Star As Thomas Wayne For Joker Origin Film


The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Brett Cullen has signed up to play Thomas Wayne in 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.

 

A few weeks ago it was reported that Alec Baldwin was playing the role but almost immediately he revealed in an interview with USA Today that due to scheduling conflicts, he couldn’t take on the role.

 

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

 

Joker is scheduled for cinematic release on the 4th October 2019.
