Lady Gaga is in talks to play Harley Quinn in Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘The Joker’ musical sequel

Singer-actor Lady Gaga is reportedly in early negotiations to join Joker: Folie a Deux, a musical sequel to director Todd Phillips’ 2019 film Joker, which starred Joaquin Phoenix in the titular role. Reports say that Gaga is in talks to play Joker’s partner-in-crime, Harley Quinn. 

After the director posted the screenplay cover on Instagram on June 7, rumours began to circulate that that Harley Quinn will feature in the film. The subtitle, Folie a Deux, refers to a shared delusional disease. In the comics, animated series and some films, Harley Quinn has often appeared as Joker’s only partner. The two have often been depicted as sharing common delusions.

Now, according to a report by Variety, Lady Gaga has entered negotiations to play Harley Quinn in the film. All other information about Folie a Deux has been kept under wraps, so it’s unclear whether Gaga will also contribute music to the project, although it’s a fair guess that she will. Joaquin Phoenix won the best actor Oscar for his portrayal of the Joker, aka Arthur Fleck in the first film. He is poised to reprise his role, though his contract hasn’t been finalised yet.
