Studio “Warner Bros.” offered Joaquin Phoenix as much as $ 50 million to star in two sequels to the movie “Joker”, which would complete the planned trilogy
According to the Mirror, the leaders of the studio plan to have two new films ready for screening in 2022 and 2024.
– Everything is still at the level of negotiations, but the scenarios have been written, and Joaquin is very interested. The studio’s plan is to make two more films over the next four years, which will feature Phoenix, as well as director Todd Phillips and producer Bradley Cooper. However, it all depends on whether Joaquin will accept the conditions – said an unnamed source.
Originally, Joaquin Phoenix and director Todd Phillips felt that just one film was enough. However, success achieved seems to have led all actors to consider future projects. The original film earned more than a billion dollars from worldwide distribution and was shot within a relatively small budget.
