Deadline reports the legendary director will produce the movie, which is expected to be an origins set story in City set in the early 80s.

“The intention is to make a gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime […] that isn't meant to feel like a DC movie as much as one of Scorsese's films from that era, like Taxi Driver, Raging or The King Of ,”  Mike Fleming Jr. writes.

Because the movie will center around a younger Joker, it is not surprising that Jared Leto is not expected to star in the movie. The studio is reportedly searching for a new Joker character with a different, likely younger, villain.

As for Jared Leto, Leto is set to reprise his role in the upcoming Suicide Squad and the Harley Quinn .
