“Crazy Stupid Love” & “Focus” directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are in final negotiations to write and direct an untitled film about Batman villains The Joker and Harley Quinn.
Unlike Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” and Todd Phillips’ upcoming The Joker origin film, this one WILL be a part of the DCEU. Jared Leto and Margot Robbie are due to reprise their roles from “Suicide Squad” as the pair of villains in what’s dubbed a ‘criminal love story’.
The plan is for this feature to go forward after the studio makes a sequel to “Suicide Squad”. That film is on the fast track and out to directors, but this is also moving fast and the studio has to deal with the issue of the actors holding agreements.
