The Joker sequel will be a “jukebox musical” that will consist of 15 well-known songs, and its story will mostly be set in Arkham Asylum. The film’s title, Joker: Folie à Deux, refers to the clinical term for the “shared madness,” hallucinations, and delusions of two people.

The movie is said to be inspired by Francis Ford Coppola’s infamous 1982 movie flop One from the Heart. Lawrence Sher praised director Phillips for going bold on the sequel, saying: “Something I appreciate about Todd Phillips — who I’ve done seven movies with, including Joker — is that he’s always taking risks. We’ve got the new Joker coming out next year and we’re just finishing up post-production on it. This movie is a big swing and it’s going to be really surprising to people. I’m so excited for everyone to see it.”

Some reactions to the film have also surfaced from early test screenings, and it seems like audiences have liked what they’ve seen.

The movie also stars Zazie Beetz as Sophie Dumond, with Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland, and Brendan Gleeson who will be playing undisclosed characters.

Joker: Folie á Deux is scheduled for release on October 4, 2024.
