Send in the clowns. The world was shocked back in early June when it was confirmed that Todd Phillips’ 2019 film, Joker, would be getting a sequel, especially when it was revealed to be a musical that would co-star Lady Gaga as fan-favorite character Harley Quinn. The newest bit of info for the film comes from both the original film and its sequel’s cinematographer Lawrence Sher as he has confirmed that the film will start filming within the next 5-6 weeks.

Sher, who was also the director of photography for the newly released and fellow DC film Black Adam starring Dwayne Johnson, was a guest on The Hollywood Reporter’s “Behind the Screen” podcast. While the interview on the podcast was mostly about the newly released film as well as that post-credit scene, Sher also spoke about his next project, which is of course the highly anticipated Joker follow-up. During the interview, Sher revealed that the film is scheduled to start in “five or six weeks’ time” and will mostly be shot in sound stages in Los Angeles but will also have scenes shot on location in New York. This would put the film starting its filming process around the end of November or start of December. He also spoke about Gaga’s role and place in the movie. “She’s going to be a really cool fit for this movie and will create a similar kind of magic that Joaquin brought by himself,” says Sher. “The combination of the two will be exactly what we hope, which is exciting, and we’ll find magic every day on set. Hopefully, we’ll also have a bit of madness in there. We like when there is a little bit of chaos.”

Film locations, "LA and New York", aren't the story. It's where in NY? That's the story. I'll tell you why.

In the movie, The Dark Knight Rises, the Occupy Wall Street movement was oddly villainized. And to make things even odder with that movie, the scene where Batman flies the bomb to the ocean right outside of Gotham City is actually the South Bronx. But the Bronx was removed, and an ocean was put in its place, to make it look like it's not NYC. But you see clearly, Batman is flying north of the East River. In real life, north of that is the South Bronx. So Batman basically drops that bomb around Yankee Stadium. Only that, in the movie, it's the ocean.

So come years later, to see the movie Joker take place in what in real life is the Bronx, was redemption for all of us in the know who live in NYC. Seeing the Joker dance on those iconic concrete staircases in the hilly Bronx, was justice for New Yorkers who had seen the Bronx erased in Dark Knight Rises. We know it's all Gotham. But for those of us who live here, that's where we grew up. That's where you had your first kiss. Where you first tagged up. Where you first got arrested at. Where your uncle and aunts live. Where you went to school at. Where you once worked at. Where you saw your first love. To us, Gotham is a real city. We want to see more of the Joker, and we want him to liberate the Bronx, err I mean Gotham.
