Gaga made the announcement on her Twitter Thursday morning, posting a teaser for the highly anticipated movie, titled Joker: Folie à Deux. 

The clip is set to the song “Cheek to Cheek,” which Gaga has covered in her music career alongside the legendary Tony Bennett.

So, let the countdown begin. We can’t wait to see what Gaga brings to the table for the sequel. We are sure she’ll knock it out of the park.
