The follow-up to 2019’s blockbuster Joker will be a, with none other than Lady Gaga expected to play the Clown Prince of Crime’s co-conspirator Harley Quinn.
Joker was originally supposed to be a standalone film, but after the R-rated movie generated more than $1 billion globally and earned Phoenix an Oscar, a sequel was pre-ordained.
Todd Phillips, who steered Joker to 11 Academy Award nominations in total, is returning to direct the sequel.
He’s also co-writing the screenplay with Scott Silver.
