Todd Phillips’ hotly-anticipated sequel Joker: Folie A Deux is expected to film in Los Angeles sound stages and on location in New York at the end of this year.
The film will see Joaquin Phoenix reprise his role and Lady Gaga take on the character of Harley Quinn, Joker’s long-time love interest who’s been previously played in DC movies by Margot Robbie. British actor Brendan Gleeson is also set to star.
The plot and character details for Folie à Deux are still being kept under wraps.
The first Joker film, which shot in New York city, Jersey City and Newark, proved to be a huge success for Warner Bros., grossing over $1bn worldwide and scoring 11 Oscar nominations including best picture and best director for Phillips.
