Jared Leto's Joker set to get his own spin-off movie

Jared Leto's Joker looks set to get his own spin-off movie. 

Leto made his debut as The Joker in 2016's Suicide Squad and now looks set to take the character into his own spin-off. 

According to Variety, Leto's movie is a separate project from Todd Phillips' origin movie for the character, which has Joaquin Phoenix attached to star. 

Phillips and 8 Mile screenwriter Scott Silver have been working on a script for a new film about Batman's nemesis since last year when the project was announced. 

Leto will next be seen as The Joker in the Suicide Squad sequel in 2019 and is also expected to appear in the Harley Quinn spin-off and new project Gotham City Sirens. 

No writer or director is attached to Leto's Joker spin-off as yet.
