Per Deadline, Brendan Gleeson has joined the growing cast of Joker: Folie à Deux.
The sequel to the 2019 hit DC film sees Joaquin Phoenix return to the role that won him an Academy Award. Also returning is writer/director Todd Phillips and actor Zazie Beetz. Much of the early discussion about the Joker sequel has focused on the casting of Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn and the shocking news that the film will be a musical.
It’s currently unknown what role Gleeson will play in the film. Gleeson is no stranger to blockbuster and franchise films, with prominent roles in Mission: Impossible, Harry Potter, Beowulf, and Troy under his belt.
Production is due to start this December on the Joker sequel ahead of a planned release date of October 4, 2024.
