The sequel, Joker: Folie A Deux, is set to release on October 4, 2024. The sequel will be a musical film (the original was squarely a dark and gritty drama) with Lady Gaga playing Harley Quinn. The report notes that Joker was supposed to be a standalone film but after the R-rated tentpole generated more than $1 billion globally and earned Phoenix an Oscar, a sequel was decided. It is said that Phoenix’s paycheck for portraying Arthur Fleck in Folie A Deux will be $20 million. 

Todd Phillips, who steered Joker to 11 Academy Award nominations in total, is said to return to direct the sequel. He is also co-writing the screenplay with Scott Silver. The first movie cost $62.5 million to produce, an unusually conservative budget for a comic book adaptation.
