We know that this looks like a somewhat coarse rumor, which smells full of fakes. But when it’s the very serious The Hollywood Reporter who releases information of this kind, we tend to trust the media, which always checks several sources before throwing out such a big thing. THR gives us more information concerning sequel to Todd Phillips’ Joker. A few days after the photos unveiled by the filmmaker, telling us that this component would be called Joker: Folie à deux – in reference to this syndrome where a person’s mental disorder affects a loved one and where their ailments are transferred to this one . Hard not to think of Harley Quinn, then. Bingo. The American media explains to us that not only Quinn should be at the heart of the plot, but it will not be the version of Margot Robbie. The shared universe principle at DC makes it possible to have several actors embodying the same character (like Jared Leto and Joaquin Phoenix). In this case, the actress in discussion and the best placed to embody the psychiatrist would be… Lady Gaga. In principle, why not, you might say. But the biggest surprise does not come from this casting choice, but from the form of the film in question. Indeed, according to this same media, this Joker 2 would be a musical. It remains to be seen what percentage of songs we would have, and whether the sung moments will be part of the hallucinatory trips or not. The first was very (very) largely inspired by Martin Scorsese’s La Valse des puppets with Robert De Niro. It’s hard, speaking of a musical set in New York, by Scorsese and De Niro, not to think of New York, New York by the same filmmaker – Martin Scorsese’s only musical, around jazz. between you, let’s also keep in mind that Todd Phillips had produced A Star Is Born, with Lady Gaga therefore, but also with Bradley Cooper, who himself is one of the producers of the first Joker – the two films being productions from from Warner. CQFD? Not far. In any case, we will have to remain patient: for the moment, no one has signed anything on the film, the deals are still in negotiation. We have time, then.
