According to reports, the upcoming Joker movie will begin filming this September in New York City.

Omega Underground reports Joker will begin filming on September 22nd and is expected to wrap around February of 2019 with production offices said to be closing at the end of February.

The movie stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, Zazie Beetz, and Marc Maron. Warner Bros. has set the release date for October 4, 2019.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio, the movie as being an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study but also a broader cautionary tale.” Scott Silver co-wrote the script with Todd Phillips.

The project’s budget is reportedly in the $55 million budget, which is significantly lower than traditional superhero movies. The upcoming stand-alone is meant to be darker and be more of a crime drama, unlike most of the other DC movie.
