Every ones favourite singer come actor Jared Leto may be donning the face paint with rumours swirling that he’s currently in talks to play The Joker in the planned movie Suicide Squad.
The movie, is based on the DC comic that covers the story of “an antihero team of incarcerated super villains who act as deniable assets for the United States government, undertaking high-risk black ops missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences. ”
The joker hasn’t been played onscreen since the late Heather Ledger famously won an Oscar for his potrayal in 2008’s The Dark Knight.
Leto, when not touring with Thirty Seconds to Mars, was last seen on screen in The Dallas Buyers Club, in a role that landed him a best supporting actor at the Academy Awards.
Leto has recently been romantically linked to Australia’s own Margot Robbie…who is also apparently in talks to play the role of Harley Quinn….The Jokers girlfriend in the movie!
Given Heath Ledger has already won an Oscar in the role, could we see another Oscar in the future for Jared Leto? we sure do hope so!
The movie, being developed by Warner Bros, is due for release in 2016.
