Zach Galifianakis to voice The Joker in LEGO BATMAN Movie

Though Jared Leto is playing the The Joker in next Summer’s Suicide Squad, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that another version of the character is on its way to the big screen. The outlet reports that comedian Zach Galifianakis is in final negotiations to voice The Joker in the upcoming LEGO Batman movie. Galifianakis joins a cast that includes Will Arnett as the titular Dark Knight and Michael Cera as the boy wonder, Robin.

Most noted for his work as a stand-up comedian and his role in “The Hangover” trilogy, Galifianakis has lent his voice to a number of animated series including “The Simpsons,” “Bob’s Burgers,” “American Dad,” “Puss in Boots,” and “Tom Goes to the Mayor.” He also co-starred alongside former Batman Michael Keaton in last year’s film Birdman and just wrapped production with Wonder Woman herself on the action-comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses.

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.
