With Todd Phillips’ “Joker” origin movie getting the official green light from Warner Bros. this week, star Joaquin Phoenix said in an interview with Collider that the decision to play the supervillain wasn’t made lightly — and that is scares the “s–t” out of him.
“I take a lot of time and consideration when making decisions and what I’m gonna work on … always,” Phoenix said. “He seems to have a very interesting understanding of this world and what he’s trying to say. And so there is something very appealing about that and working with him on this particular project,” said of working with the “War Dogs” and “The Hangover Trilogy” filmmaker.
Phoenix has been thinking about a project like “Joker” for a hot minute. Phoenix added, “Three or four years ago, I called my agent and said ‘Why don’t they want to take one of these characters and just make a lower budget film about it, a movie but a character study, and why not take one of the villains?’ And I thought, ‘You can’t do the Joker, because, you know, it’s just you can’t do that character, it’s just been done.’ So I was trying to think of other characters, and he said ‘I’ll set up a general meeting with Warner Bros.’ And I said ‘I’m not gonna go, I can’t go to a general meeting.’ So I completely forgot about it, and so then I heard about this idea, I was like, ‘Oh that’s so exciting, that’s the kind of experience I wanted to have, with a movie based on a comic character.’ I felt like you could get something on screen.”
