'The Killing Joke' inset Leonardo DiCaprio
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros.is keen to get DiCaprio interested in the project, which is part of the reason they want his frequent collaborator Scorsese to produce.
THR notes that Scorsese's involvement "could elevate and diversify the studio's contributions to the genre, creating the potential to make awards-worthy films such as Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy". Jared Leto played the Joker past year for Suicide Squad, and he's reportedly not happy about the idea of multiple film franchises with different incarnations of the villain.
We had already heard that a Martin Scorsese produced film about The Joker was in the works and that Jared Leto would NOT be playing the villain. This comes as DiCaprio has made a career of avoiding tent-pole Hollywood blockbusters and franchises.
Illinois Tax Bill Signed Into Law
It includes educational and tax policy that has not shown to be successful in the 17 other states that have attempted such policy. The bill also contains a provision that would allow Chicago Public Schools to raise taxes by $120 million or more .
The idea of having two different big screen versions of the Joker developing at the same time was met with much skepticism from a lot of people, including apparently Jared Leto himself. It's still uncertain whether or not Ben Affleck will portray the Caped Crusader in this upcoming film.
While the directorial duties appear to be in order, there is no current offer to DiCaprio. "But the attempt in itself sends a signal to talent that Warners wants to hire serious filmmakers to make serious films".
Jared Leto as the Joker in Suicide Squad. Considering DC's shaky track record (Wonder Woman aside), it'd be a risk he simply doesn't have to take. Leo has starred in several Scorsese films, including The Wolf Of Wall Street and The Departed with former JokerJack Nicholson. That should smooth over any hurt feelings it may have also helped the DCEU simply adding a new movie to the lineup that wasn't there to begin with.
