Todd Phillips still wants to surprise us.

Less than a week after Todd Phillips’ post revealing that the script for the sequel Joker was ready, with the title “Folie à deux” and Joaquin Phoenix in full reading, we already know more about the project. The Hollywood Reporter advance indeed that negotiations with Lady Gaga started for the role of Harley Quinn. But that’s not all: the film would also be a musical!

Folie à deux being the name of a phenomenon of shared psychosis, generally affecting members of the same family, we suspected that the famous partner of the Joker was going to be part of it. It is now confirmed. Recruit Lady Gaga in the role, otherwise held by Margot Robbie in both Suicide Squad and Birds of Preywould be a big blow for Warner Bros., but the deal remains to be finalized of course.

the THR also specifies that if Joaquin Phoenix posed for Todd Philipps reading the script co-written with Scott Silver, the studio has not yet validated the presence of the actor in the sequel. The signature of the contract would however be close, and it is hard to imagine a joker 2 to be done without its star, who won an Oscar for the role.

Surprise success of the year 2019, with 1 billion in revenue for a small budget of 60 million dollars, this new reading of the Joker never ceases to amaze us. Always according to the source of the THR, Joker: Madness for two will be a musical. A genre that is not generally associated with superhero or supervillain films, and which could give an explosive cocktail with the duo Joker / Harley Quinn headlining.
