Joker Script Available Online
And as if things couldn’t get more exciting for fans of both DC and the Todd Phillips movie, Joker, the full script is now available to read online.
This is good news for fans hoping for some major awards for the film as there is no doubt that the amazing script is going to play a key role in winning big during the upcoming awards season.
With the release of the script, Todd Phillips wasted no time clarifying how Joker fits in with what we already know about the character, Batman lore and DC as a whole.
This story takes place in its own universe. It has no connection to any of the DC films that have come before it. We see it as a classic Warner Bros movie. Gritty, intimate and oddly funny, the characters line in the real world and the stakes are personal. Although it is never mentioned in the film, the story takes place in the past…lets call it 1981. It’s a troubled time. The crime rate in Gotham is at record highs. A garbage strike has crippled the city for the past six weeks. And the divide between the “haves” and the “have-nots” is palpable. Dreams are beyond reach, slipping into delusions.
The script for Joker is free to read and a great “go-to” for all Batman fans and fans of the Joker character.
Joker is now available digitally and on Blu-ray in January.
