Jared Leto and Margot Robbie are set to return to their roles as The Joker and Harley Quinn in a ”criminal love story” spin-off.
meanwhile Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who wrote and directed 2011’s ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’ – and also worked as directors and executive producers on NBC’s hit drama ‘This Is Us’ – are reportedly in ”final negotiations” to direct the as yet untitled movie.
According to The Hollywood Reporter magazine, the movie is being described as a ”criminal love story,” with one source adding: ”[It is] an insane and twisted love story. ‘When Harry Met Sally’ on benzedrine.”
The Hollywood Reporter states that the studio plans to release ‘Suicide Squad 2’ – which was recently put on the fast track and is now searching for a director – first, and then the Joker/Harley spin off, but sources say both projects are moving quickly as the studio is conscious of actors holding their agreements.
