There were a bunch of new clips shown all around social media over the weekend that feature Robert Dinero reprising his role from the genius 1983 film “The King of Comedy” where De Niro played a lowly comic who kidnaps a talk-show host (Jerry Lewis) whom he is obsessed with.
“There’s a connection, obviously, with the whole thing,” said De Nero during some interviews he was having at the Tribecca Film Festival. “But it’s not as a direct connection as the character I’m playing being Rupert many years later as a host.”
As “Joker” is set to premiere on Sat at the Venice Film Festival everyone is waiting to see what this film is going to be like. Much speculation and lots of discussions have been had…we can’t wait to see!
