DC fans get ready to witness the love story of Harley Quinn and her puddin` The Joker.
Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who helmed the 2011 film Crazy, Stupid, Love, are entering the DC cinematic universe at Warner Bros.
The duo are in final negotiations to pen and helm an untitled movie project centering on Batman villains Joker and Harley Quinn, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Jared Leto and Margot Robbie are due to reprise their roles as the villains, among the most popular characters in the DC pantheon and which they first portrayed in 2016’s ‘Suicide Squad’.
The plan for the movie is to go after the studio makers to make a sequel to ‘Suicide Squad’. The latter is on the development fast-track and out to directors.
But the Joker and Harley Quinn movie is also moving fast as Warners has to contend with actors’ holding agreements.
The feature is described as a “criminal love story,” according to one source, featuring the two murdering maniacs who are cornerstones in the Batman mythos.
Additionally, the project falls within Warners’ main line of movies based on their DC properties.
That includes the current pictures released and in production that feature Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, among other characters who collectively form the ‘Justice League’.
