“Joker” cinematographer Lawrence Sher says the upcoming sequel “Joker: Folie a Deux” is currently “in the final stages of production”.

As previously revealed by Sher, the new film is using Francis Ford Coppola’s musical “One from the Heart” as a template for its visual style.

Even though the “Joker” sequel is still a year away from release next October, it seems work on it has been proceeding apace and will be finished well before that planned release.

Speaking with Definition Magazine (via SHH) in a recent interview, Sher says:

“Something I appreciate about Todd Phillips – who I’ve done seven movies with, including Joker – is that he’s always taking risks. We’re just finishing up post-production on it. This movie is a big swing and it’s going to be really surprising to people. I’m so excited for everyone to see it.”

The R-rated 2019 film grossed $1 billion and landed Joaquin Phoenix the best actor Oscar. Phoenix returns as Arthur Fleck here in a story that will reportedly unfold almost entirely within Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum.

Lady Gaga, Zazie Beetz, Catherine Keener, Brendan Gleeson, and Jacob Lofland co-star in the movie which Phillips once again directs from a script he wrote with Scott Silver. It opens October 4th 2024.
