According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gaga’s Harley would exist “in a different DC universe” than the one played by Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad (2016), birds of prey (2020) and The Suicide Squad (2020).

The film will see former joker director Todd Phillips returns as director and co-writer alongside Scott Silver.

The second installment of the series is highly-anticipated, given the success of joker in 2019.

The first film broke box-office records as the first R-rated movie to hit the US$1 billion mark, reports peopleand also earned 12 Oscar nominations, including a Best Actor win for Phoenix.

Phillips teased the sequel back in June, sharing a red script for the film and another black and white photo of Phoenix reading the script.

No other cast members have been released for the project.

But there is a clue in the film title.

‘Folie à Deux’ is a French term referencing a delusion or mental illness shared by two people. So perhaps there are some dark and twisted journeys ahead for Phoenix and Gaga.
