Lady Gaga In Early Talks To Star Opposite Joaquin Phoenix In ‘Joker’ Sequel – Deadline

Oscar winner Lady Gaga (House of Gucci) is in early talks to star opposite Joaquin Phoenix in Warner Bros.’ Joker: Folie à Deux, Deadline can confirm.

Details as to the Joker sequel’s plot have thus far been kept under wraps, though we know that Todd Phillips is returning as director, after breaking news of the film’s title via Instagram. As was the case on the original film, he co-wrote the script with Scott Silver.

Gaga will play Harley Quinn—the Arkham Asylum shrink who falls in love with her patient Arthur Fleck aka Joker—though her version of the character will be a DC universe apart from Margot Robbie’s version, seen in the Suicide Squad films.

While Phoenix’s deal for the new Joker film has not yet been signed, we hear that he is in advanced talks. Gaga is repped by CAA and manager Bobby Campbell.
