'Joker' director Todd Phillips 'open' to sequel: Report

Joker filmmaker Todd Phillips is mulling over the possibility of a sequel.

The director’s origin story about the Batman villain, starring Joaquin Phoenix, was a huge hit in 2019 — and now Phillips admits a follow-up is a big possibility.

“When a movie does $1 billion and costs $60 million to make, of course it (sequel) comes up,” Phillips tells Deadline. “But Joaquin and I haven’t really decided on it. We’re open.

“I’d love to work with him on anything, quite frankly. So who knows? But it would have to have a real thematic resonance the way this one did, ultimately being about childhood trauma and the lack of love, and the loss of empathy. All those things are really what made this movie work for us, so we’d have to have something that had an equal thematic resonance.”
