    Variety has been informed by insiders with access to filming and early versions of Todd Phillips’ much anticipated “Joker” sequel that the picture leans heavily toward being “mostly a jukebox musical,” with at least fifteen covers of “very well-known” songs.

    One is reportedly “That’s Entertainment” from the Judy Garland-famous 1953 musical “The Band Wagon.” There is, nevertheless, talk of there being one or more original songs to be included in the film.

    It’s not yet known who will be in charge of writing, composing, and singing the songs, but we are leaning towards Gaga being a part of the process.
    Hildur Guðnadóttir, the Oscar-winning composer of the first “Joker” film will also contribute to the film’s music.

    Luckily, we do have a snippet of Gaga singing for the film from one of the shoots, and she sounds absolutely phenomenal.

    According to Variety, the sequel’s budget is getting close to $200 million, which is a big increase over the $60 million of the first movie. With the success of Denis Villenueve’s “Dune: Part Two,” Warner Bros. has high expectations for this sequel.

    Though the movie’s story is still unknown, “Joker 2” has been called a “drama set in and around the world of Arkham Asylum.” Based on inside information, the sequel is expected to continue from where the first movie left off, with Arthur fleeing Arkham Asylum and escaping the orderlies after killing a doctor.

    “Joker: Folie à Deux” will hit theaters on Oct. 4.
