LaKeith Stanfield recently expressed interest in working with the Uncut Gems directors on a Joker movie.
While Joker is currently receiving plenty of praise during awards season, LaKeith Stanfield recently mentioned that he’d love to work on a different Joker movie with the Safdie brothers, the directors behind the Adam Sandler starrer Uncut Gems. LaKeith Stanfield previously mentioned that he’d love to take a shot at playing the Joker on the big screen, but now he’s even pitching who should helm the movie for him.
In a recent interview with Collider, LaKeith Stanfield followed up his interest in playing the Joker by explaining that what he’d do with the character would be linked with who he was working with, and what the plot of the film would look like. During the interview, LaKeith Stanfield suggested that working with the Uncut Gems directors on a Joker movie could result in an incredible collaboration. Given that the star himself mentions which world he could exist in, it would be interesting to watch LaKeith Stanfield’s Joker opposite Robert Pattinson’s Batman in a few years time. Take a look at LaKeith Stanfield discussing a Joker movie below.
“What I’d bring to it would have a lot to do with who I collaborate with, and how the story’s written and what world we exist in, and then I’ll go do my lil magic. Hey, wouldn’t it be crazy if me and the Safdies did something like that?”

Here is the official synopsis for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker:
Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.
Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
