Lady Gaga is said to be playing Harley Quinn in the “Joker” sequel. The sequel will also be a musical.

Has Lady Gaga (36) landed the next big film role? As The Hollywood Reporter reports, the singer is said to be in talks to take on a role in the “Joker” sequel. Accordingly, Lady Gaga could embody Harley Quinn. According to insiders, Joaquin Phoenix (47) is also in negotiations about his return as Joker. In addition, the sequel is said to be a musical, as the “Hollywood Reporter” further reports.

Joaquin Phoenix has already read the script

Last week director Todd Phillips (51) announced via Instagram that there would be a second part of the Oscar-winning film from 2019. He posted a photo that apparently shows the cover of the script. On a red background are the words: “Joker Folie à Deux, written by Scott Silver and Todd Phillips”. The two were already responsible for the screenplay of the first part. “Folie à deux” is the expression for a common psychotic disorder. Close people develop common delusional ideas.

Another photo in the post shows Joaquin Phoenix immersed in the script, fueling rumors that the actor could reprise his role as the psycho clown. In 2020, the “Joker” brought him the Oscar for “Best Actor”.
