Recent claims tease that the Warner Bros. Joker origin movie is much further into development than we may have thought. Variety‘s Justin Kroll revealed on his official twitter account that the first draft of the script should arrive next week and that the studio is looking to start production in 2018. The film will be separate from the DC Extended Cinematic Universe — which includes Jared Leto’s Joker in Suicide Squad — and will be an origin story for the iconic villain.

The Joker origin movie is being helmed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover trilogy), and legendary director Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street) is currently still on-board to produce. No cast has been revealed yet, but recent reports tease an interest in Leonardo DiCaprio (The Great Gatsby) for the titular role. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
