Lady Gaga to Reprise Her Role as Harley Quinn in The Musical Sequel to ‘Joker’

Following director Todd Phillips’ announcement earlier this month that a sequel to the 2019 film is in the works, it’s been reported that Lady Gaga is in talks to play Harley Quinn alongside Joaquin Phoenix.

Phillips announced ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ last week by revealing the cover of the script, which he and his Joker co-writer Scott Silver wrote. He also tweeted a photo of Phoenix reading the script, implying that the actor will reprise his Oscar-winning performance as the titular character.

According to reports, the planned sequel will be a musical, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Phoenix’s involvement is also said to be a work in progress, with the actor and Warner still in talks. Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is in early talks to play Quinn, the Joker’s Arkham Asylum psychiatrist who falls in love with him, helps him escape, and eventually becomes his sidekick and romantic companion.

Their connection has been depicted on-screen before – Margot Robbie played Quinn in Suicide Squad in 2016, Birds of Prey in 2020, and The Suicide Squad in 2021 – but Folie à Deux would be the first time the character appears in Phillips’ Joker universe.

In recent years, Gaga has starred in a number of films, including 2018’s ‘A Star Is Born’, which Phillips produced, and last year’s ‘House of Gucci’.
