Lady Gaga In Talks To Star In ‘Joker 2’ Opposite Joaquin Phoenix

While nothing has been officially confirmed, the report claims that if Gaga nabs the role, she will portray The Joker’s psychiatrist turned abused girlfriend, Harley Quinn.

That’s not the biggest Joker news, however, as The Hollywood Reporter also claims that the Joker sequel will be a musical. This is certainly an unexpected turn for the Joker sequel, but if handled correctly it could turn out to be a genius idea.

Todd Phillips, who directed 2019’s Joker, has been co-writing the screenplay for the sequel with Scott Silver for quite a while. Taking to his Instagram account, Phillips announced that the sequel is titled Joker: Folie à Deux, which references a medical term for an identical or similar mental disorder that affects two or more individuals. Joaquin Phoenix is expected to reprise his role as The Joker, but the THR report clarified that the actor hasn’t officially signed-on to return yet. Warner Bros. is reportedly working hard to make a deal with the actor.
