Bad Santa and This Is Us writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are working on the script for the Joker and Harley Quinn film, which appears to be a much more well-conceived project than Suicide Squad. Played by Dr Phil hopefully. The film reportedly opens with Harley kidnapping Dr. Phil because she and Joker need to work out the problems in their relationship (here's a solution: dump that loser and date Poison Ivy, Harley!). It was sort of like, we wrote "Bad Santa" a couple of years ago, and it was that sensibility mixed with our "This Is Us" sensibility. "We kind of meshed them together". We were doing a relationship movie but with the sensibility of a Bad Santa, f***ed up, mentally deranged people. "It was a lot of fun". They're putting plenty of emphasis on Joker and Harley Quinn because of fan reaction but it still feels like they are throwing things against the wall to see what sticks.

The duo are also attached to the Warner Bros. project as directors, having previously directed the first six episodes of This Is Us as well as directing Harley Quinn actor Margot Robbie in 2015's Focus and 2016's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. But the partners are hopeful that it will get made sometime in the near future.

As far as the timing, they don't know when it will start production but Ficara shared, "We handed the script in and everybody loved it". Said Requa, "I don't know where it is on the queue of DC movies". "But I don't know when they are going to do it".

Will the Joker and Harley Quinn movie take precedence over Suicide Squad 2? Just remember that Warner Bros. Maybe we'll find out after The Joker and Birds of Prey finally hit theaters.
