The Joker looks to be scary good next Halloween.
Joker: Folie a Deux–the sequel to the 2019 blockbuster–this week landed an Oct. 4, 2024 release date, according to a report on Deadline.
The film–reportedly on pace for a production start this December–will again be directed by Todd Phillips, who will write the screenplay with Scott Silver.
Little else is known about the storyline or cast–except that Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix is in “advanced talks” to reprise his lead role and Lady Gaga is huddling for what may be the part of Harley Quinn, the Arkham Asylum psychiatrist who falls for Phoenix’ Arthur Fleck.
Joker–starring Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz and Frances Conroy–follows failed clown and aspiring stand-up comedian Arthur Fleck, whose descent into insanity leads him to the persona of the Joker. The film became the first R-rated movie to earn more than $1 billion at the box office.
