Director Todd Phillips has offered a first look into the upcoming film, “Joker: Folie à Deux,” the sequel to the groundbreaking film “Joker.”
“The Hangover” director took to Instagram to post a photo from the film’s first day of shooting, featuring actor Joaquin Phoenix taking on his Oscar-winning role while getting a shave.
“Joker” was released in 2019 and became the first R-rated film to gross more than $1 billion at the box office. The film was also nominated for eleven Academy Awards at the 92nd Academy Awards, winning two, including the Academy Award for Best Actor for Phoenix.
The sequel, which translates to “Joker: Madness for Two,” is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2024. It will feature the addition of Lady Gaga, who has been cast to play love interest Harley Quinn.
Also, the upcoming “Joker” sequel will be a musical, so perhaps we will see a return of Phoenix’s notorious dance moves. (NBC)
