The Margot Robbie-Led Harley Quinn Movie is Officially Happening
There’s plenty more crazy where that came from.
No matter what negative comments you have about DC’s Suicide Squad, big office bucks typically measure up to a sequel in Hollywood’s eyes.
And while most of the elements featured in the on-screen comic book creation failed miserably, one star in particular shined above the rest: Margot Robbie. Girls around the world are morphing themselves into Harley Quinn replicas, and it seems Warner Bros is equally prepared to keep her presence around with a solo outing for the batshit crazy bad girl.
According to THR, the 26-year old has officially signed a first-look deal with the studio to develop and produce feature films through her banner, LuckyChap Entertainment. LuckyChap is currently in the midst of postproduction on neo-noir film Terminal, before it begins work on two Robbie-led projects, the novel-adapted Bad Monkeys and Tonya Harding biopic, I, Tonya.
Warner Bros’ first-look deal is said to bring more a focus to female-driven storylines, which is why the Harley Quinn spinoff will be a big deal for the movie biz, and DC in general. If the latest batch of rumors attached stay true, a Birds of Prey influenced storyline will bring to new an array of “other DC heroines” to the big screen, turning the film into a teenage boy’s costumed wet dream.
