Lady Gaga in Early Talks to Play Harley Quinn in JOKER Musical Sequel

Lady Gaga in Early Talks to Play Harley Quinn in JOKER Musical Sequel

Oscar winner Lady Gaga ("A Star is Born", "House of Gucci") is in early negotiations to join the cast of "Joker: Folie a Deux" as Harley Quinn, the Joker's partner in crime (and madness). Quinn's appearance in the story seemed like a sure thing following the announcement of the sequel's title.

Furthermore, it is being reported that the film, which is once again co-written and directed by Todd Phillips, will be a musical. Harley Quinn was originally an Arkham Asylum psychiatrist who falls in love with her patient Arthur Fleck aka Joker.

Harley Quinn was first created in the early 1990s for "Batman: The Animated Series". Quinn is also played by Margot Robbie in the "Suicide Squad" films, but that version of the character exists in a different DC universe.

Phoenix has not yet signed a deal for the new "Joker" film, but he is also in advanced negotiations. All other details are still under wraps, and it's unknown if Gaga will also contribute music to the project, but it sounds likely.

The 2019 DC movie "Joker" grossed more than $1 billion worldwide against a $60 million budget, and was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, winning two for Best Original Score (Hildur Guonadottir) and Actor (Phoenix).
