Joker and Harley Quinn film moves forward with Glenn Ficarra and John Requa attached to create

THR reports that Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the directors behind Crazy, Stupid, LoveFocus, and the Tina Fey dramedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, are in final negotiations to write, direct, and produce an untitled movie centering on Joker and Harley Quinn, with Jared Leto and Margot Robbie reprising their roles from Suicide Squad.

The film is described as a “criminal love story” and will revolve around the two characters that were introduced in the 2016 villain team-up film.

“Insiders say that the plan is for this feature to go after the studio makes a sequel to Suicide Squad. The latter is on the development fast-track and out to directors,” the THR reported. “But the Joker and Harley Quinn movie is also moving fast as Warners has to contend with actors’ holding agreements, say sources.”

Expect a fast turn around because as “THR reports one issue involves actors’ holding agreements—many of the actors from Suicide Squad signed contracts to appear in future films and sequels, but those contracts would appear to have expiration dates or at the very least dates at which the DC films lose their “priority” on the very busy ensemble’s schedule.”

Ficarra and Requa previously wrote and directed I Love You Phillip Morris (2009) and followed that up with the Crazy, Stupid, Love, which starred Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. The duo worked with Robbie when they wrote and directed the 2015 heist movie Focus and the 2016 war comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

Ficarra and Requa also exec produce and direct episodes of This is Us, NBC’s hit tearjerker that is was for nine Emmy Awards.
