"Joker," the Todd Phillips film starring Joaquin Phoenix as the homicidal Batman villain with an affinity for clown makeup, will film in Jersey City and Newark on six dates starting next weekend.

The upcoming film shoot, the largest production to film in Jersey City in recent memory, has that city's emergency management officials coordinating with City Hall's communications staff and the police department to make sure all runs smoothly.

In Jersey City the production will shut down Newark Avenue in front of the historic Brennan courthouse and the county administration building for an entire Sunday later this month and a portion of Kennedy Boulevard near the Journal Square PATH hub for a Friday afternoon in November, according to plans obtained by The Jersey Journal.

The plans call for NJ Transit to reroute buses during filming and for the city to prevent pedestrians and motorists from disrupting filming.

A flyer seeking extras says filming will take place in Newark between Oct. 13 and Oct. 16.
