Joker, the prestige DC film whose dramatic turn changed some people’s perception of the kind of movies the studio would put out, has been greenlit for a follow-up. The sequel, titled Joker: Folie À Deux, will be a musical with Joaquin Phoenix reprising the eponymous role and Lady Gaga introducing her version of Dr. Harleen Quinzel aka Harley Quinn.
