Just a week ago, Todd Phillips announced on social media that he was reuniting with Joaquin Phoenix to begin work joker 2but now the details about the sequel are getting a little more interesting. Joker: madness for two is going to be a musical, and Lady Gaga is in initial talks to star as Harley Quinn The Hollywood Reporter.
According to the story, Gaga would play a very different version of Harley than the current DC Universe incarnation played by Margot Robbie. This would fit the general format of the original film, which also casts Phoenix as the Joker in its own universe, separate from DC’s other films. Neither Phoenix nor Gaga have yet finalized deals to make the film, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Phillips and Gaga have also worked together before. Phillips served as a producer in 2018 A star Is Bornwhich starred Gaga alongside Bradley Cooper – who in turn produced joker
Meanwhile, on Gaga’s side of things, Joker: madness for two would go perfectly with the trend of her previous film choices. She has now starred in two prestigious dramas, winning acclaim but no Oscars for both. Meanwhile the original joker received 11 nominations and two wins, including a statue for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Joaquin Phoenix.
One question this new casting news raises is what this movie could be about. While early speculation suggested the film’s working title, Joker: madness for two, could refer to Batman, it now seems more likely that it could instead refer to Joker’s longtime partner in love and crime, Harley. Either way with joker 2The most likely stars of who aren’t finalizing their deals yet, we’ll probably have to wait quite a while for a trailer or release date.
