Joker Pitch Meeting (ft. The Film Theorists)May 31, 2021
so he's got a movie for me yes sir i got it i was thinking we can do a
jokermovie ok he's going to get the word very added to his damage tattoo. Oh no no no no no no no that completely different Joker version of the Joker but if he doesn't have a damaged tattoo on his forehead how are people going to know he's damaged? Oh they'll know don't worry it's all going to be an origin movie taking place in a 1981 Origin movie yeah yeah yeah you know people love the Joker so I think we could show his origin story .
I don't know, I feel like one of the things people like about the Joker is that he doesn't really have a clear origin story. there's a lot of youtube videos theorizing about that, yeah, and we need people to make theoretical videos about our movies, so you really care about theories, uh, yeah, I mean they're essentially free advertising and I don't like spending money, Oh yeah. You hate that I do it. I feel like if we give the Joker an orig. in the story, it's going to be hard for youtubers, you know, to come up with theories, in fact, it's going to be very easy, barely an inconvenience, oh yeah, I mean these youtube people can theorize everything on here. calm down what you have a theory boy yes sir i do good um hello hello what can i help you with hello hello if i told you we're making a
jokerorigin movie that takes place in the early 80's is something you could work on with wait, please.
The early 80's movie Joker Origin has a thing for me. get it out of your wallet Oh pickpocketing is hard hit me with those theories well maybe the whole movie is taking place in his head that's a fantastic classic angle or maybe we could say Jared Leto is the Joker he took the mantle of this 1980s Joker that would probably give us a lot of ire clicks those are great to look at cow or get this maybe the Joker is Batman ok I'm going to take a chance here and say no let's dial it back, that's going too far.
Oh Walt whoopsie wait hello yes we definitely can. i work with this oh amazing thanks for your time super easy hardly a minus nice to talk to you what a nice guy i keep your phone by the way i like it oh thats so bad so what actually happens in the movie lets follow this guy, Arthur Fleck, and he has this thing where he laughs uncontrollably in inappropriate situations, oh I have that with the smile, they do, wow, wow, wow, wow, so anyway Arthur is having a really hard time, he works like clown, he takes care of his mother and he has various mental illnesses Oh, what does he have?
Oh you know the lazy kind we can use as an excuse for violent outbursts later that's probably fine so Arthur just wants to be loved and make everyone happy but people are so mean to him and the system it's beating tell him which system D system which which oh don't get me started on the system could you start? I'd love to dig a little deeper into that No oh damn, suffice to say we live in a society oh Why didn't you say so? That's deep enough for me, so yeah, for a good chunk of the movie, we're just going to see bad things happen to him.
You know they fire him. Some children beat him while yelling. dialogue and then at one point he's on a train in clown makeup and these banker guys start harassing a woman who's not very nice but then Arthur starts laughing so they start harassing him and let me tell you these guys they know all the lyrics to send in the clowns how convenient they had that in their repertoire yeah so they start beating him up and he kills them all oh my god yeah and then he runs off and dances oh he dances eh very creepy well i'm glad you like it because it's going to happen a lot oh yeah the laughing and dancing account for half the runtime Wow so what else is going on?
Arthur is also an aspiring comedian and is obsessed with this late night talk show host who he is convinced will give him his big break that sounds a lot like Scorsese's movie King of Comedy. you've seen it uh yeah yeah okay so full disclosure there's a lot of that in this movie and also a fair amount of taxi drivers if i'm being honest what do you mean there are a lot of really uplifting scenes? of those movies or you like to pay homage to them well I mean you know it depends which one of those doesn't end with the lawsuit the second one okay okay so the second one so it's a mirage sure you know what. make it perfectly clear we're going to have robert de niro host it okay great anyway one night arthur ends up trying out stand up comedy and an open mic and he can't stop laughing it up because it's his thing because it's this and then robert de niro reproduces the footage in his sample because it's so ridiculous he got footage from an open mic yeah well i mean it's 2019 everyone
films everything these days well i mean people don't really shoot unknown comic sets with open mic, isn't this happening in 1981?
Okay so let's say someone brought a very expensive bulky camcorder to an open mic and
filmed the whole thing for some reason I'm pretty sure camcorders only hit the market in like 83 ok ok so someone brought their Super 8 film camera and then got it. the film was developed and then he sent it to Robert De Niro, well then, a very convenient filmmaker, oh, and also Arthur finds out that Thomas Wayne is perhaps his father, so he goes and knows, puts his fingers in the mouth of his little brother. fingers in people's mouths, yeah, but he'll find out later that maybe Batman isn't his brother, so he, you know, smothers his mom with a pillow, oh my god, he's got too all this relationship I'm still with this neighbor of hers, okay, but towards the end of the movie he walks into her apartment and she's scared that he's there and she says your name is Arthur, right?
I know it was all in her imagination, so we're going to have a Fight Club flashback, oh no, yeah, we're going to reminisce about every moment they had together and we're going to reveal that he was actually alone, no, I get it like that. in fight club i'm a mirage in that too good i guess how does the movie end? When does the big CGI bolt from the sky come in? Well, it's a comic book. You're crazy I guess, so what's up? Well, Arthur comes on TV and, you know, he hits DeNiro over the head quite nicely and it causes this big ruckus where everyone is dressed as really cool clowns and then in the middle of that, Thomas and Martha Wayne go to walk out of a movie theater and walk down an alley, come on, we're doing this, you're right, we're doing this, we've got to do this, we've got to do this, so we do this and pearls fly everywhere. this symbol and only the Basques and the glory of this movement that he started woof woof woof woof maybe he didn't know maybe he imagined it yes maybe it's all in his head who knows so that's ok so what do you think well I mean what sounds like a movie i'm just a little concerned what kind of message we might be sending and what kind of things we might be glorifying yeah i wouldn't worry oh ok then i won't. that
