Todd Phillips decided to release the Joker script on the net and everyone could read. And one thing that caught the attention of fans is that it leaves a warning about the movie:
‘This story takes place in its own universe. And it has no connection to any DC movies ever made. What we see is a classic Warner movie, dark, intimate and strangely entertaining. The characters live in the real world. Although never mentioned in the movie, this story is set in the past. Let's say it's 1981. It's a tough time. Gotham's crime rate breaks records. And the division of classes is palpable. Dreams are beyond reach, becoming disappointments'
Discussions about a sequel already take place in the studio, but for now, concrete negotiations have not yet started.
With an estimated budget of $ 55 million, Joker has become the largest box office for an R-rated production in history, surpassing the $ 1 billion mark.
