A day after the announcement of a Joker origin story movie, Warner Bros went on to announce yet another buzz-making project starring Gotham City’s favourite mad man.
With Jared Leto and Margot Robbie already signed to reprise their roles from Suicide Squad, Joker’s favourite co-star Harley Quinn will be romancing him in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Harley-Joker misadventure will be written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who is the director and executive producer of the weepy TV series This Is Us. The duo also wrote and directed I Love You Phillip Morris and Focus, while strictly directing Crazy Stupid Love and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
Shoot for the film will start after WB wraps on the Suicide Squad sequel, which doesn’t even have a director as of now, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
According to the simultaneous reports of Deadline, the upcoming Harley-Joker movie is the one previously referred to as Gotham City Sirens.
The new project is also described as a Suicide Squad spin-off, which will be produced by DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns. In the David Ayer directorial Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn and the Joker were seen as mad lovers. The film also recounted the origin story of the character of Harley Quinn and how she, a former psychiatrist, came to be the Joker’s lover from his doctor.
