Joker sequel is in progress
There were a lot of people around the world who were pleading for a sequel to Todd Phillips’ Joker. But, there were some little doubts in the minds of many people and of course the ones sitting in the building of Warner Bros. But, everything changed when Joker went on to broke the $1 Billion Mark at the box-office and was a huge achievement for WB and DC. Now, it has been reported by The Hollywood Reporter that Todd Phillips headed to Toby Emmerich’s office with another DC story idea.
But, initially, Emmerich declined the idea as the earlier talks were about only one film. After a lot of debate and the success that Joker has earned worldwide, Emmerich granted the one more DC story around Joker’s character to Todd. The sources of THR also reported that Phillips is bringing Scott Silver again to write the screenplay of this follow-up. The news has already broken the internet because the sources of THR are reputed and trustworthy.
Well, writings were on the wall and got coloured when Joker entered into the $1 Billion clubs. No wonder, WB and DC want to cash-in with this sequel because after all, it’s all about what the audience wants. And, if they’re shouting for Arthur, then they’ll get Arthur again.
