Filming for the new Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix will begin in 2023, a source at Warner Bros. told Heroic Hollywood.

According to an insider, the film company has already received the first draft of the script. Also, the DeuxMoi website reported that Lady Gaga will play the female lead in the upcoming sequel , although Phoenix insisted that his wife Rooney Mara get this role .

That Warner Bros. plans to shoot a sequel to the Joker, the media wrote back in 2019, but a lot of time has passed since then, and many have already stopped believing that the picture will still be launched.

In 2020, it became known that Joaquin Phoenix, who did not originally plan to return to the role of the Joker, was offered a fee of $ 50 million to participate in the continuation of the comic book.

The first part of “Joker” was released in 2019 and became the highest-grossing R-rated film in history.
