JOKER: FOLIE A DEUX Cinematographer Explains Why Lady Gaga Is Perfect Choice To Play Harley Quinn

Joker: Folie à Deux cinematographer Lawrence Sher (Black Adam) has teased Lady Gaga's role as Harley Quinn in the upcoming sequel, explaining why the actress and singer is a great addition to the DCEU.

2019's Joker was a bigger hit than anyone ever imagined, with Joaquin Phoenix's take on the Clown Prince of Crime vastly different to previous iterations. A story grounded wholly in reality, Todd Phillips' movie took place in a world without superheroes and delivered a very unique origin story for Batman's greatest foe. 

While the story felt largely standalone in nature, a sequel is now on the way in the form of Joker: Folie à Deux

That's expected to take place primarily in Arkham Asylum, with Arthur Fleck crossing paths with this DC Universe's take on Harley Quinn, played by singer and actress Lady Gaga. The movie is expected to include musical elements and sounds like another delightfully unhinged visit to Gotham City. 

The Hollywood Reporter recently spoke to cinematographer Lawrence Sher, and while he wouldn't give too much away about the follow-up, he had nothing but good things to say about Gaga. 

"She’s going to be a really cool fit for this movie and will create a similar kind of magic that Joaquin brought by himself," Sher says. "The combination of the two will be exactly what we hope, which is exciting, and we’ll find magic every day on set. Hopefully, we’ll also have a bit of madness in there. We like when there is a little bit of chaos."

He would go on to note that Joker: Folie à Deux will be shot primarily on soundstages in Los Angeles, as well as on location in New York. Shooting begins in five or six weeks' time, so that hopefully means we'll eventually start getting set photos when cameras begin rolling in the Big Apple.

Story details are few and far between at the moment, though most DC Comics movies are plagued by leaks, so don't be shocked if we learn more about the script soon!

Joker: Folie à Deux is set to be released in theaters on October 4, 2024. Many thanks to artist Rahal Nejraoui for the banner image above.
