Todd Phillips writes screenplay for ‘Joker 2’
It’s no joke: Warner Bros. is reportedly developing a sequel to Joker.
In some ways, this is not shocking. Joker was a huge hit in 2019. The film grossed over $ 1 billion worldwide against an announced budget of $ 55 million. He was also nominated for 11 Oscars and won two, for Best Original Score and Best Actor. Set totally apart from the rest of the DC Comics Cinematic Universe, the film proved that heroless super-villain films – or any connection to the larger DC film continuity – can be major hits in the world. box office. Studios tend not to leave movies like this without sequencing.
According to Hollywood journalist, Warner Bros. has quietly started the imbalance process Joker. IIn their list of powerful Hollywood lawyers, they include an entry for lawyer Warren Dern, who counts among his clients. Joker director and co-writer Todd Phillips. And in that entry it says that “Todd Phillips has made a deal to co-write the next Joker Payment.”
In the past, Phillips has expressed his willingness to create another Joker, provided that “there would have to be a thematic resonance” as the first film did. Shortly after the release of the first film, there were reports that Phillips was already working on Joker 2 and several other DC villain origin stories, but the filmmaker said that while he and Joaquin Phoenix “had spoken” about the possibility of a Joker 2, there is “no contract for us to even write a sequel” and called the rumor “at best anticipated”.
Well if THRThe sources are correct, Phillips now has this contract to write a sequel. Next, we have to see if Phoenix can be convinced to return for another movie as the Joker. As far as a scenario is concerned, there is absolutely no information about it. Personally, I would like to see the movie take a page from reality and focus on a guy who dresses up as Joker and shows up for government office.
