Together, we can

Phoenix, Phillips ‘likely to re-team’ for Joker sequel

Joaquin Phoenix

Director Todd Phillips is likely to re-team with star Joaquin Phoenix for a sequel of the $1 billion-grossing R-rated hit Joker, says a source.

Talk of the sequel has been rife since the film’s critically acclaimed premiere at the Venice film festival in August, but confirmation has proved elusive. Such a project is now in final-stage discussion, and Phillips and Phoenix are “likely to re-team”.

The director will write the screenplay to the sequel along with co-writer Scott Silver, with whom he worked on the original’s script. 

The initial box office numbers scored by Joker were enough for Warner Bros to agree to Phillips’s request to direct another DC Comics origins story —tipped to be Lex Luthor. Batman is already being shot by Matt Reeves, with Robert Pattinson in the lead. — IANS
