‘Joker: Folie á Deux’ Working Title Teases Lady Gaga’s Harley Quinn

From Romeo to Juliet!

Lady Gaga Harley Quinn Joker

The working title for Joker: Folie à Deux hints at the tragic relationship between the DC Comics characters played by Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga.

Production on Joker: Folie à Deux is now underway under the working title “Juliet,” following in the footsteps of the first Joker movie, which went by “Romeo.” The titles are references to the classic play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. The movie is currently shooting in New York City.

The first details about the Joker sequel

Joker followed Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck as he transformed into the Clown Prince of Crime and Folie á Deux now looks set to show Harleen Quinzel following him into madness, with Lady Gaga playing the DC Comics villain. Phoenix earned an Oscar for his work as The Joker.

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 the a significant chunk of the sequel is expected to take place in Arkham.

Todd Phillips, who helmed the first Joker movie, is returning to the director’s chair for Folie à Deux, working from a script he co-wrote alongside Scott Silver. Production is currently underway for an October 2024 release.

The cast of Folie à Deux also features 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!
