What do we know about Joker: Folie à Deux?

Joker: Folie à Deux is a sequel to 2019’s Joker, which was directed by Todd Phillips and saw Joaquin Phoenix play the character of Arthur Fleck/Joker. The movie was a massive hit for Warner Bros., bringing in over one billion dollars off an estimated budget of $55-70 million. Phoenix also won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in the film.

While Joker was originally intended to be a standalone movie, Phillips announced that a sequel was officially in development in June 2022. Phillips is once again directing the movie and co-wrote the script with Scott Silver.

Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland, Steve Coogan, Ken Leung, and Harry Lawtey are also playing undisclosed roles in Joker: Folie à Deux.

Following the initial announcement that Joker: Folie à Deux was in development, news broke that the DC Studios sequel would be a musical. Last month, Variety reported that it will be “mostly a jukebox musical” in the style of Mamma Mia! and Moulin Rouge. The full soundtrack has not been revealed at this time; although, it will supposedly feature 15 “very well-known songs,” one of them being “That’s Entertainment” from 1953’s The Band Wagon.

Joker: Folie à Deux releases in United States theaters on October 4, 2024, from Warner Bros. Pictures.
