HOLLYWOOD—Where are all the little monsters? Mother monster will be on the screen again. We are all excited that Lady Gaga is going to play a new version of Harley Quinn in “Joker: Folie a Deux” opposite Joaquin Phoenix, who actually won an Oscar for the Best Actor. The pair seemingly meet and fall in love in the Arkham Asylum before apparently escaping and forming a musical duo. The director is Todd Phillips who says it isn’t a musical, as it has been rumored, however says that the music is an essential element. Back in 2019, Phoenix won an Oscar for best actor in his performance in the Joker.

Back in 2019, the film the “Joker” made over $1 billion, so it was only a matter of time before the twisted psychological thriller centered on the green-haired super villain and Batman adversary would be getting a sequel. According to published reports, it was back in 2022, at the time that Lady Gaga was filming “House of Gucci,” that it was released that she was in early talks to join Phoenix in the “Joker: Folie a Deux.”

The film’s title is a reference to a medical term for an identical or similar mental disorder that affects two or more individuals, usually members of the same family, according to published reports. Then, on August 4 of that year, she confirmed the news, posting a musical teaser to social media that shows the silhouettes of the two actors dancing cheek to cheek. The film was co-written by director Philips and Scott Silver, with whom he collaborated on the Joker.

Filming began in Los Angeles in December 2022, with additional filming in New Jersey and New York, in fact the scenes from the Arkham Asylum scenes were filmed at the Essex County Isolation Hospital. Most of the scenes are said to be centered around the Joker and Harley Quinn’s meeting at the asylum, making the New Jersey location pivotal. Additional scenes were filmed outside the same courthouse where Donald Trump was arraigned in New York City and the so-called Joker stairs in the Bronx.

Production reportedly wrapped on April 4, 2023. This past Valentine’s Day, 2024, Philips shared three pics from the film, which included Gaga with the widest eyes known to man alongside Phoenix in full glam, a pic of the two waltzing, and the most Gaga pic of all, the two actors with their noses pressed together.
