Last month Screen Rant broke the new that we’d be seeing a Harley Quinn and Joker movie and now it looks like we have some movement on the picture. Hot off the heels of yesterday’s Joker origin story movie with Martin Scorsese attached to produce, it looks like Warner Bros. is going to double down on the Clown Prince of Crime with Harley Quinn and the Joker. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Warner Bros. has entered final negotiations with Crazy, Stupid, Love directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa to write and helm an upcoming DC movie based on two of the most popular rogues in Batman’s gallery, the Joker, and Harley Quinn.
Both Margot Robbie and Academy Award-winner Jared Leto are set to reprise their roles for the film. We don’t know when the film will begin production, but reports indicate that the project is being fast-tracked in order to accomedate Robbie and Leto’s holding agreement. The studio is hoping to go into production right after the sequel to Suicide Squad wraps, which is being shopped around to directors.
Harley Quinn and Joker movie is said to be a “criminal love story” between the two murderous psychopaths and will be a part of WB’s main DC Films continuity. This means it will be taking place in the same timeline with all of the current DCEU films and not in an alternate or earlier timeline like the upcoming Batman film or the Joker Origin film.
