Exclusive: Joaquin Phoenix on His “Unique” Joker Movie and Why It Scares Him
14 July, 2018, 12:27
After months of speculation and rumors, it was finally announced earlier this week that Phoenix will officially be playing the Clown Prince of Crime in Todd Phillips'Joker Origin Movie.
Philips directed "The Hangover" trilogy and "War Dogs", and Phoenix told Collider that working with him on the Joker's origin film "scares" him.
In an answer to another question, Phoenix hinted that the Todd Phillips directorial would be a character study, and less of a comic-book action flick that routinely come out of Marvel and DC's own stables. He also spoke about how Todd Phillips' approach to the movie really sold him on taking on the project as well. "It feels unique, it is its own world in some ways and maybe, mostly, it scares the fucking shit out of me or something", Phoenix added. "It might as well be the thing that scares you the most", he said.
Joaquin Phoenix is set to star in a Joker origin movie. Phoenix then replied, "I wouldn't quite classify this as like any genre". I wouldn't say it's a superhero movie, or a studio movie or a.
In discussing the film itself, Phoenix said the genre is indescribable, landing not in one genre or the other, but rather feeling like a purely unique feature and that the most important thing about the film is Phillips' passion for the project. "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'".
"I think, underneath the excitement of these films, and the size of them, there are these incredible characters that are dealing with real life struggles", he continued.
As their time together neared its end, Weintraub asked about the "singular" nature of the project, and how keeping the tale seperate from that of the other DC films would shake out.
"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, '" he says". In addition, while most comic book movies have a huge budget, this Joker movie is rumored to be in the $55 million range, which suggests a riskier take on the material and perhaps an R-rated release. That's because over his brilliant career, Joaquin Phoenix has delivered a number of exceptional performances that repeatedly demonstrate his ability to transform into the character he's playing. This idea sounds much more appealing to an actor like Phoenix.
I think most fans are happy with Phoenix's casting, or at least intrigued enough by it to stay optimistic. Whether it be politics, the environment, Star Wars movies, or nearly any subject out there, you have people arguing about it online and in public, and it can get uncomfortable really fast. It will be very interesting to see what Phoenix brings to the role that has been done a few times before, leaving some pretty big shoes to fill. Phoenix admitted that he is scared while speaking to Collider.
I think it is for the team. "And the quality of the global players, we want them to come quickly and to start with us". Mesut is on holiday and I want him to be calm, then when he comes back to start hard'.
