Just a few days after revealing a Joker sequel actually exists, news has come out that Lady Gaga is in talks to join the film, which will be a musical apparently.
As many figured from the title reveal last week, it seemed like a strong possibility Harley Quinn would be a central part of Joker: Folie à deux. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed Lady Gaga is in talks to join the film for that particular role!
According to them, the singer/actress is in early talks (so it’s not a sure thing right now) to star opposite Joaquin Phoenix’s Clown Prince of Crime. What’s more, their sources report that the sequel will actually be a MUSICAL this time around.
Yes, a Joker movie musical.
Certainly nothing I, or anyone else, was expecting. I can’t say I’m sure it’s going to work, but I will say I’m suddenly much more interested to see how they pull it together.
