Lady Gaga is said to be in talks about playing Harley Quinn in the upcoming sequel to Joker.
In a surprise move, the follow-up from director Todd Phillips will be a musical with the title Joker: Folie à Deux, a reference to a shared delusional disorder.
According to Variety, Gaga is in "early negotiations" about playing Quinn, Joker's long-term partner-in-crime, having previously worked with Phillips on A Star Is Born.
The publication also says that Phoenix is expected to reprise his role as Joker for the sequel but has yet to sign on the dotted line.
The movie is not expected to begin filming until next year, suggesting that a release may not take place until 2024.
