WHOO HOO! THE HOTTEST COUPLE (FROM THE FIRES OF HELL) RETURNS
Remember how, waaaay, waaaay back in the mists of time (like, uh, yesterday), we told you about the upcoming Joker origin movie? You know, the one to be produced by Martin Scorsese? Well, turns out there’s PLENTY more Joker in the pipeline. And he’s decidedly not alone.
SUICIDE SQUAD? TRY HOMICIDE SQUAD (THIS MOVIE WILL MAKE A KILLING)
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, directors and executive producers of the hit NBC drama This Is Us and who also wrote and helmed the 2011 film Crazy, Stupid, Love, are entering the DC cinematic universe at Warner Bros. The duo are in final negotiations to pen and helm an untitled movie project centering on Batman villains Joker and Harley Quinn. Jared Leto and Margot Robbie are due to reprise their roles as the villains, among the most popular characters in the DC pantheon and which they first portrayed in 2016’s Suicide Squad.
Insiders say that the plan is for this feature to go after the studio makes a sequel to Suicide Squad. The latter is on the development fast-track and out to directors. But the Joker and Harley Quinn movie is also moving fast as Warners has to contend with actors’ holding agreements, say sources. The film is described as a “criminal love story,” according to one source, featuring the two murdering maniacs who are cornerstones in the Batman mythos. One insider offered this: “an insane and twisted love story. When Harry Met Sally on Benzedrine.” Warner Bros. is simultaneously beginning to develop a line of DC-related films that will fall outside the established cinematic universe which sees actors and storylines threaded through multiple movies.
If you’re a fan of murder, mayhem, machinations and moral collapse, this news is most majorly mega.
