Margot Robbie praises Glenn Ficarra and John Requa on Joker and Harley Quinn project

While in London for the Goodbye Christopher Robin junket, ComingSoon.net spoke with Margot Robbie about re-teaming with writer/directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who she previously worked with on Focus and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! for the Joker and Harley Quinn film.

The Wolf of Wall Street star had great things to say about the prospect: “I heard that too,” Robbie said. “They’re great! It’s fun working with a directing duo, and I love them. I’ve obviously done two films with them so I think they’re just brilliant. I’m personally a sucker for a love story. In any iteration. I think people enjoy seeing two characters who, in Harley and Joker’s case, would die for one another. It’s kind of romantic in a messed up way.”

Jared Leto is set to reprise his role in a film likened to the 1994 “psychos in love” classic Natural Born Killers. The film is reportedly to be made after the Suicide Squad sequel, with Robbie on board as an executive producer.

It was also announced recently that Warner Bros. Pictures and DC are in the early stages of developing at Joker origin movie, which would not star Leto. The Hangover‘s Todd Phillips will co-write the script with 8 Mile‘s Scott Silver. Phillips will direct the movie, to be produced by Martin Scorsese and Phillips.
