So another incarnation of the Clown Prince of Crime is set for the big screen…
THR are reporting that the Hangover star Zach Galifianakis is set to play The Joker in the upcoming LEGO Batman movie. He will join Will Arnett as Batman and Michael Cera as Robin.
It’s an interesting choice and we kind like it… this is a whole new version of Joker and it’ll be fun to see what he does with it.
The LEGO Movie animation supervisor Chris McKay will direct The LEGO Batman Movie, which features a script by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter creator Seth Grahame-Smith. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who directed The LEGO Movie and are also developing an animated version of Spider-Man for Sony, will produce the film along with Dan Lin.
The LEGO Batman Movie will swing into theaters on May 26, 2017.
