Last month we learned that Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are in talks to write and direct a Joker and Harley Quinn movie starring Jared Leto and Margot Robbie. One thing I didn’t realize back then was that Robbie has a lot of experience working with the duo.
Glenn Ficarra and John Requa directed Margot Robbie in 2015’s Focus which co-starred Will Smith, as well as 2016’s Whiskey Tango Foxtrot which Robbie starred in with Tina Fay. SuperHeroHype caught up with Robbie at a recent press event, and asked for her thoughts on possibly teaming with Ficarra and Requa for a third time on Joker and Harley Quinn.
“I heard that too,” Robbie said of the Joker and Harley Quinn movie news. “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.”
