Joker: Folie À Deux From Todd Phillips Gets A Release Date

Joker: Folie À Deux

Lots of stuff going on today that is keeping Warner Bros. in the negative light of the media. One thing we did not expect was a release date for the Todd Phillips’ Joker sequel. According to Deadline, Joker: Folie À Deux is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2024. This comes from a recent update in Comscore.

Warner Bros. had already held that date for a previously untitled DC project. But it at least fills in a name for the time being. Back in 2019, Joker was released in October to a record domestic opening release of $96.2 million. Then overall it became the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time at $1.07 billion. Then it went on to win two Academy Awards. One for Best Actor for star Joaquin Phoenix. The other for Original Music Score for the work of Hildur Guðnadóttir.

Back in June, we had seen the cover of the screenplay for Joker: Folie À Deux via a social media post from Phillips. As well as an image showing Phoenix reading over the screenplay. The name of the sequel comes from a French reference for a medical term pertaining to a mental disorder that affects two or more people. It was also rumored that Lady Gaga was being courted to possibly play a Harley Quinn-type character.

Here is the synopsis to Joker

Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.

The sequel is set to start production in December. Joker: Folie À Deux is now slated for October 4, 2024, in theaters.
