It’s long been rumored that Joker: Folie à Deux would be a musical. The film’s composer Hildur Guðnadóttir teases the large role of music in the film.
Hildur Guðnadóttir won an Oscar for her work as the composer of the first Joker film back in 2019. With Lady Gaga now joining the cast of Joker: Folie à Deux as Harley Quinn, fans speculate the sequel may be a full-blown musical. While details about the second film have been kept under wraps, Guðnadóttir teases plenty of music for the film:
“All I can say is there is going to be a lot of music,” Guðnadóttir told ComicBook.com. “That’s all I can give away.”
While far from confirmation, Hildur Guðnadóttir’s tease and Lady Gaga’s involvement as Harley Quinn certainly paint an interesting and highly musical picture for Joker: Folie à Deux. Despite filming for the project having wrapped nearly half a year ago, audiences still have over a year to wait for the highly-anticipated sequel. Though given the film’s Oscar potential, it may very well be worth the wait.
What can audiences expect from the Joker sequel?
After the first film ended with Arthur Fleck in Arkham State Hospital, it’s likely that – as in previous iterations – Harleen Quinzel will start out as the Joker’s psychiatrist. Plot details are being kept under wraps but a significant chunk of the sequel is expected to take place in Arkham.
Todd Phillips is directing Joker: Folie à Deux from a script he co-wrote alongside Scott Silver, who also worked on the original. Production is currently underway for an October 2024 release.
The cast of Folie à Deux features Joaquin Phoenix, Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beetz, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland and Harry Lawtey.
The first Joker movie is currently available on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD and digital formats. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the sequel and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
