In more “why is this happening” news. It’s just been announced that Warner Bros. is developing an untitled tentpole movie starring Jared Leto as the Joker and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who direct and exec produce NBC’s “This Is Us,” are in final negotiations to direct the villain movie as part of the expanding DC Entertainment universe.
Leto and Robbie will reprise the roles they played in the studio’s 2016 super-villain mash-up “Suicide Squad.” The project is separate from the recently unveiled standalone Joker solo movie being developed as a potential directing vehicle for Todd Phillips of “The Hangover” — which will not star Leto.
Quinn is currently preparing for an all female villain mashup in “Gotham City Sirens” where she will also reprise her role of Harley Quinn where she will team with Catwoman and Poison Ivy. The other two respective roles have not yet been filled.
Ficarra and Requa directed Robbie and Will Smith in the heist movie “Focus.” Their other big-screen credits include “I Love You Phillip Morris” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”
With the whirlwind ride the DCEU is on are you looking forward to this potential addition to the universe .
