Joaquin Phoenix gets ready to dance on the stairs. Director Todd Phillips shared a photo of the script for the new "Joker," as well as a shot of Joaquin Phoenix reading it. To recap, the actor starred in the original 2019 film, which grossed over $1 billion at the box office, and won an Oscar for it. Thus, there is no doubt that a sequel to comedian Arthur Fleck's Gotham story will be made.
The new film is called "Joker: Folie à Deux", which can be translated as "Joker: Madness for Two". Phillips co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Silver, who also co-wrote the first film. Judging by the title, one can determine the direction in which the authors developed the narrative. Apparently, the Joker will have a partner or partner in "adventures" - risky escapades, which at the end of the first part led to a mass riot.
In any case, studio-producer Warner Bros. expects the sequel to have the same tremendous box-office results as its predecessor. is known that Phoenix was offered $50 million by producers for playing the lead role in two more films.
