Todd Phillips Shares Set Photo of Joaquin Phoenix from Joker: Folie a Deux

While everyone is talking about what James Gunn and Peter Safran are going to do with the DC Universe or they’re waiting for news from Matt Reeves corner of the world, Todd Phillips is quietly working away on the sequel to his surprise hit film Joker. The Joaquin Phoenix led sequel entitled Joker: Folie a Deux, has begun filming and is said to have Lady Gaga, Zazie Beetz, Brendan Gleeson and Catherine Keener in the cast.


Phillips has an Instagram page and to say he posts rarely might be an overstatement. He has posted four times this year. The first was in honor of the passing of Ivan Reitman. The second was to show the cover page for the Joker sequel script and a picture of Phoenix reading it. The third was the video announcing Lady Gaga as part of the cast. And now yesterday when he posted the first set photo from the film.

We see Phoenix getting a shave but what looks to be someone in a uniform. This is likely at Arkham Asylum and he’s probably not willingly sitting there. Perhaps this was Phillips way of reminding everyone that this franchise is still here and filming.
