Talk about an interesting pairing. Lady Gaga has confirmed she will appear alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the upcoming sequel to Todd Phillips’s Joker. Here’s what you need to know.
The singer shared a red and black post on social media which was accompanied by the film’s scheduled release date. Joker: Folie a deux, the follow-up to the Oscar-winning 2019 film, is due to hit cinemas on October 4 2024. The post shows a video of Gaga and Phoenix’s shadows joining together while music from an old-fashioned gramophone is heard in the background.
Lady Gaga To Star With Joaquin Phoenix In The New ‘Joker’ Movie
Phillips, who has reunited with writer Scott Silver for the project, also shared the video, captioning it “cheek to cheek.” In June, the director revealed that a follow-up to the 2019 film was in the works when he shared a picture of a script to Instagram as well as another with the star of the original, Joaquin Phoenix, reading it.
Gaga and Phillips previously worked together on A Star Is Born, where the filmmaker was among the producers of the 2018 box office hit. Gaga was Oscar-nominated for her performance and shared the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga has released a new song from the forthcoming Tom Gun sequel. The song, Hold My Hand, marks Gaga’s return to writing and producing following the success of the A Star Is Born soundtrack in 2018 – which earned her both a BAFTA and an Academy Award. The track, which features a score from Oscar-winning musician Hans Zimmer and Harold Faltermeyer, was co-written and produced by BloodPop with additional production from Benjamin Rice.
Lady Gaga said she feels “blessed to sing, write songs, produce and perform” after releasing her new track from the highly-anticipated Top Gun sequel, Maverick. The singer previously said she has been “perfecting” the song for years, and described it as a “love letter to the world.”
On Instagram, Gaga, 36, said: “I wanted to say that I wrote the song for the INCREDIBLE movie #topgun #topgunmaverick but also for people who feel like they’re not gonna be ok or WE ARE never gonna be ok and that life taught me through hard times to have faith in humanity when it’s hard to have faith in yourself.”
