There’s been plenty of news coming out about Todd Phillips’ standalone ‘Joker’ movie (here’s everything you need to know about it), including new set photos and a video just yesterday. But DC and Warner Bros wouldn’t want you to forget about the other movie they’re planning about the Clown Prince of Gotham.

The untitled film will see Jared Leto and Margot Robbie (one got critical acclaim for their performance, the other did not) return to the roles of Joker and Harley Quinn that they played in ‘Suicide Squad.’

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, whose credits include ‘I Love You Philip Morris’ and ‘Crazy Stupid Love’, are writing and directing the spinoff.

In a Metro US interview, they described the film being something of a cross between ‘Bad Santa’ and ‘This Is Us’ (the duo wrote the former and directed episodes of the latter).

Ficarra said: “It is great. The whole thing starts with Harley kidnapping Dr. Phil. Played by Dr. Phil hopefully. Because her and the Joker are having problems with their relationship… We had so much fun, I don’t know if we have had more fun writing a script in our career.”

He continued: “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.”

As for when it might be released, Requa says: “I don’t know where it is on the queue of DC movies.”

“We handed the script in and everybody loved it,” added Ficarra. “But I don't know when they are going to do it because I know that they want to do ‘Birds Of Prey’ and they want to do Todd's ‘Joker’ film first. Maybe if ‘Birds Of Prey’ goes well ours will be next.”

‘Birds Of Prey’ is currently in the process of casting with Margot Robbie set to reprise Harley Quinn. Cathy Yan is expected to start filming at the start of next year.

Todd Phillips’ ‘Joker’ movie, which stars Joaquin Phoenix in the titular role, is currently shooting and set for release on October 4, 2019.
