Margot Robbie Is Working on a 'Totally Separate,' Female-Centric Harley Quinn Movie


Robbie reveals she's been developing a completely new Harley Quinn movie that's separate from 'Gotham City Sirens', the planned Joker-Harley Quinn team-up movie and 'Suicide Squad 2'.
Margot Robbie has revealed that she's currently working on a completely new Harley Quinn movie. In an interview with MTV's Josh Horowitz, the Aussie actress revealed the untitled Harley Quinn project has nothing to do with "Gotham City Sirens", and is "totally separate" from other DC films like the planned Joker-Harley Quinn team-up movie and "Suicide Squad 2".

"I've been working on a separate spin-off for Harley for a while now," Robbie told Horowitz, adding that her take would give the wacky pig-tailed villainess the "girl gang" she's so desperately missing in "Suicide Squad". "I want to see her with other women," the 27-year-old actress said. "I kept saying it while we were filming 'Suicide Squad'. I was like, 'She needs her girlfriends.' "

Robbie isn't sure which of Harley's multiple spin-offs will go into production first, but she's confident she'll be reprising the role of the Queen of the Crime sometime next year. "I, honestly, don't think anyone knows what's going to be the next thing to happen, but I think everyone's keen to get Harley back on screen," she said. "So everyone is working on lots of different versions of what that could be."

Robbie will remain faithful to the spirit of the character, as she wants to keep the fans happy. As she explained in the interview, "I think when it comes to something that has such a huge fan base already, you obviously want to do the fans justice." She continued, "You want to show them the characters they fell in love with, but you also can't be paralyzed by the idea of, 'How do we please everyone?' because it's just not going to happen with any film."



Robbie's other project, "Gotham City Sirens", has David Ayers attached to helm and Geneva Robertson-Dworet as a screenwriter. Rumor has it, the film will focus on the villainesses from Batman's rogue gallery. Among them are Harley, Catwoman, who is also known as Batman's sometime love interest, and Poison Ivy, who uses plants and their toxins to get what she wants.

Robbie, alongside Jared Leto, is expected to reprise her role as the psychiatric-turned-villainess in DC's untitled Joker and Harley Quinn project, which has Glenn Ficarra and John Requa on board to pen and direct the team-up flick. She has also been confirmed to return to "Suicide Squad 2" along with Deadshot depicter Will Smith.
