A sequel to ‘Joker’ was announced last week and it is now being reported the Lady Gaga is in early talks for a lead role with the rumour being that the project, which is going by the title ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’, will take the form of a musical.
No details have been released about who she would be playing but the assumption is it will be a version of Harleen Quinzel, the psychiatrist that will become Harley Quinn. This film, like ‘The Batman’, stands alone from the wider DC Universe of films so this will not impact on Margot Robbie’s portrayal of the character. The characters inclusion would make sense as the title translates as “the madness of two”.
As for the film being a musical, it is unclear if it will be a full production or feature musical fantasy sequences.
Todd Phillips is returning to direct and is writing alongside Scott Silver. Joaquin Phoenix will be back as Joker, the first time he has sequelised one of his performances.
There is no release date set.
