Now the Hollywood star, who is currently on her worldwide tour ‘Chromatica Ball,’ has shared the first teaser for the movie, acting alongside Joaquin Phoenix, and revealing she will be playing the fan-favorite role of Harley Quinn, previously played by Margot Robbie in ‘Suicide Squad’ and ‘Birds of Prey.’
Fans of the performer are thrilled to have confirmation about her new adventure, as the movie has been described as a musical, having the opportunity to showcase her talent and incredible voice. Filming for the production is set to start in December and released Oct 4, 2024.
The new teaser shows the silhouette of Phoenix and Gaga on a red background, dancing to Tony Bennett’s song ‘Cheek to Cheek,’ a song that was previously covered by the singer.
