Joker Director Todd Phillips Reveals The ‘Real Truth’ About Those Sequel Reports

Joker is nothing if not an agent of chaos, and that chaos has been on full show this week with the continuing saga of a possible sequel to Warner Bros.’ smash hit Joker. First we heard a sequel was occurring, after which we heard it wasn’t. In a scenario like this, the place one report is saying one factor and one other is saying the alternative, if doable, it’s greatest to get the data straight from the supply. Fortunately, Joker director Todd Phillips has revealed the ‘actual fact’ about these sequel stories, saying:

It appears to be like like it might be greatest to pump the brakes on the hype for Joker 2, no less than for now. In his feedback to Eric Kohn at IndieWire, Todd Phillips addresses the varied stories to disclose the reality of the scenario relating to Joker 2. The director makes it clear that the preliminary report that Joker 2 was shifting ahead, and that he was in talks to return as director, was at greatest untimely as a result of no such factor has occurred but.

Todd Phillips will not be signed on to direct a sequel, he and co-writer Scott Silver will not be contracted to put in writing a sequel, and Joaquin Phoenix has not been approached to reprise his acclaimed starring position as Arthur Fleck in a sequel. So by the sound of it, on a technical degree (momentum is one other story), we aren’t any nearer to a Joker sequel proper now than we had been proper earlier than the movie got here out.

Nevertheless, simply because no names have been signed on dotted strains and no launch dates have been set, that doesn’t imply that Todd Phillips is refuting the opportunity of Joker 2 ever occurring. Because the director stated, when his movie was on the competition circuit, previous to its October four launch, he and Warner Bros. executives talked in an off-the-cuff, conversational method in regards to the prospects.

Todd Phillips has beforehand said that he and Joaquin Phoenix mentioned sequel concepts throughout filming, however these casual hypothetical conversations are removed from definitive. It’s also noteworthy that Todd Phillips isn’t adamantly denying he’d ever do a sequel now, regardless of saying a number of instances he supposed Joker to solely be a standalone movie. He’s not saying he’ll do a sequel, however he’s not saying he gained’t both.

Clearly the explanation Joker 2 looks as if not solely a chance, however an inevitability, is how properly the movie did on the field workplace. Todd Phillips’ movie has revamped $1 billion, with out releasing in China is now the very best grossing R-rated movie ever and probably the most worthwhile comedian ebook film ever. That’s numerous incentive to dive again into Gotham for a sequel.

Todd Phillips acknowledged this and admits {that a} sequel is clearly being talked about, no less than by executives, if not with him simply but. However that’s so far as something has progressed almost about Joker 2 up thus far. If I needed to guess, we’re about $700 million previous ‘if’ territory and properly into ‘when’ territory in the case of a Joker 2. But regardless of earlier stories, for now, that ‘when’ will not be fairly but.

Joker is now enjoying. To see what motion pictures you possibly can sit up for subsequent 12 months, take a look at our 2020 Launch Schedule.
