The highly anticipated sequel to Joker is taking a surprising turn – It’s going to be a musical spectacle. Details are emerging about the film’s soundtrack, revealing a mix of at least 15 “very well-known songs” reinterpreted for the twisted world of Gotham. Cherry on the cake- some original music thrown in for a healthy measure. Stepping into the shoes of Joker and Harley Quinn, Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix are bringing their own charm to Joker: Folie à Deux. Read on to know details.

Friday’s report from Variety suggests that Todd Phillips’ long-awaited follow-up Joker: Folie à Deux will mostly feature well-known tunes, with an estimated 15 reimaginings in the works. “It’s a jukebox musical,” an insider says. One of the songs that’s likely to be reimagined is This Is Entertainment, a tune from the 1953 show Band Wagon, which is often associated with Judy Garland.

The report suggests that there may be original songs in addition to the re-imagined covers, but the specifics remain a mystery. When reached for comment, Warner Bros. declined to comment on this or on the involvement of the Academy Award-winning composer of the first film, Hildur Gudnadottir. A source, however, has suggested that she may still “infuse her signature, evocative notes” into the musical performances.

While details about the plot of The Joker 2 have yet to be revealed, the movie has been described as a “drama set in and around the world of Arkham Asylum.” Since the first part ended with Arthur escaping Arkham Asylum and running away from the orderlies after killing a doctor, the sequel will likely pick up where the first film left off, according to some inside information.

Apart from Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix, other cast members include Zazie Beetz, Catherine Keener, and Brendan Gleeson. Phillips co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Silver.

Joker 2 is expected to have a budget of around $200 million, according to Variety. This is a significant increase from the original film’s budget of around $60 million. Poised to be the next biggie by Warner Bros after Dune 2, the film is hitting theatres on October 4. Other upcoming titles include George Miller’s Furiosa: a Mad Max Saga, Tim Burton’s Breathe in the Void and the animated version of The Lord Of The Rings: War of the Rings.
