After much speculation, it seems the sequel to the Oscar winning “Joker” is finally in the works. 4 time Oscar nominee Todd Phillips posted the first draft of the script on his Instagram, along with a picture of Joaquin Phoenix reading it. Besides directing, Phillips once again wrote the script with Scott Silver, with whom he earned an adapted screenplay Oscar nomination with.
The first draft of the script is titled “Joker: Folie a Deux”, which stands for a delusion or illness shared by two people in close association. I’m not getting my hopes up too much, but it does make me wonder if this is related to Harley Quinn.
I am still completely against a sequel being made to this film. It just doesn’t need any further exploration and worked perfectly as a one off film. But if Phillips and Phoenix are doing it the story must be good enough to warrant their return.
