TV & FILM

DC's movie slate beyond this year is something of a pile up of movies with no release dates and release dates with no movies. One of the more intriguing projects we've heard about is this film about the relationship between Joker and Harley Quinn with Jared Leto and Margot Robbie allegedly returning to their respective roles.
The film is set to be written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, with whom Robbie worked on 2015's Focus and 2016's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. This gives her some rather keen insight into their process, which is exactly what Coming Soon was thinking when they asked Margot if she had heard about the film...
“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.”
Nothing groundbreaking yet, but this is still a ways off. Don't forget that before this happens, there's also Gotham City Sirens, Suicide Squad 2, the non-related Joker origin movie, not to mention all the Justice League-related films. It's getting crowded in here.
