‘Joker’ Sequel A Go; Todd Phillips Posts Script Cover

Joaquin Phoenix Nearing Deal To Reprise Arthur Fleck

This has been building since before Toby Emmerich exited and Michael De Luca

and Pam Abdy took the reins at Warner Bros. Joaquin Phoenix hasn’t quite

signed a deal to reprise his role as the disturbed murderous anarchist Arthur Fleck in a sequel to the billion dollar grossing Joker,.

but the film is a go. Director Todd Phillips revealed on Instagram that there’s a Joker sequel script

he just wrote with Scott Silver and that Joaquin Phoenix, who won an Oscar for playing the title role,

is reading it. That isn’t quite true; Phoenix read it awhile ago,

and it has come down to making a rich deal for him to star in the genre-jumping sequel.

The screenplay is titled Joker: Folie à deux, the French reference being a medical term pertaining to a mental disorder which affects two or more people.
