Published Aug 24, 2017Despite the fact that it totally sucked, Suicide Squad racked up enough cash for producers to plan all sorts of follow-ups. We've heard rumours that Mel Gibson might direct the sequel, and that Margot Robbie was getting her own Harley Quinn movie. Now, it looks like a pair of rom-com directors are plotting a movie starring Robbie's Harley and Jared Leto's Joker.
Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are the brains behind the Steve Carrell/Ryan Gosling/Emma Stone movie Crazy Stupid Love as well as NBC's weepie dramedy This Is Us. According to The Hollywood Reporter, they'll next leave their stamp on the world of mall goth superheroes with a Harley/Joker movie.
Naturally, the film will still be twisted AF. An insider described it to THR as "an insane and twisted love story. When Harry Met Sally on benzedrine."
The idea is for this extremely messed-up and edgy rom-com to arrive after Suicide Squad 2, which is the next major priority for the studio.
