While Jared Leto was reported to harass his co-stars while filming Suicide Squad, extras on the set of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker movie reportedly had their own awful experience as the film's production is accused of locking background extras in a subway car and denying them bathroom breaks for three hours. The extras banged on doors and windows, before urinating on the tracks from the spaces between cars.
The Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists has received a complaint and sent someone to resolve the situation and monitor future production.
Directed and co-written by Todd Phillips, Joker stars Phoenix as the titular character, along with Robert De Niro, Marc Maron, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, and Bill Camp. The movie is set to release October 4, 2019.
