According to the Hollywood Reporter, the singer and actress Lady Gaga is in negotiations to interpret the harlequin following ‘joker‘, which will be called ‘Joker: Folie à Deux‘ (‘Joker: Madness for Two’).
The site also claims that the sequel will be a musical, and that the ‘Gucci House‘ already talked to the studio for the role.
The character has been played by Margot Robbie in ‘Suicide squad’‘Birds of prey‘ and ‘The Suicide Squad‘. This time the Harley Quinn will be introduced in an even darker way.
The director Todd Phillips confirmed the sequel last week, posting a picture of the script and Joaquin Phoenix reading the script written by Phillips and Scott Silver.
In ‘joker‘, Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) works as a clown for a talent agency and, every week, has to go to a social worker, due to his known mental problems. After being fired, Fleck reacts badly to the mockery of three men in the middle of the subway and kills them. The murders start a grassroots movement against Gotham City’s elite, of which Thomas Wayne (Brett Cullen) is its largest representative.
According to the newspaper daily mirror, phoenix is set to receive $50 million to play the Joker in two more films.
Warner Bros’ idea is to release the new films in 2023 and 2025.
