Following on from last week's news that Joker 2 was in the works – with the title Folie à Deux – it has been revealed that the movie will reportedly be a musical.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lady Gaga is in early talks to star alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the follow-up to 2019's Joker, with the singer potentially joining as Harley Quinn.

Funnily enough, with Folie à Deux of course also being the title of Fall Out Boy's 2008 album, the band took to social media last week to joke that, "Folie à Deux the musical coming soon." Now it looks like that might actually be happening – so here's hoping we can see Gaga and Joaquin busting out the likes of I Don't Care and America's Suitehearts…

Reflecting on that album in an interview with Kerrang!, bassist Pete Wentz shared that, “People worry that we don’t like this record, but I like it. It was a special one. We stepped out on it, but maybe we stepped out a little too far, looking back. It happened during this crazy sonic departure in culture, where the world went from having Sugar, We’re Goin Down on the radio to switching to four on the floor dance music. We had to put out a record in that context and it was so weird.”
