A Harley Quinn Spin-off Movie Is Happening

Margot Robbie's new Warner Bros. deal includes a solo outing for Suicide Squad's best character.

Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn is getting the solo outing she deserves.

Robbie has signed an overall development and production deal (opens in new tab) with Warner Bros., and one of her first projects will be a spinoff movie for the Joker's better half.

Despite being pretty poorly served by Suicide Squad's script, Robbie is credited as one of the major reasons for the film's $700 million worldwide gross. As yet, we have no word on whether Method Actor Jared Leto will return to method-act his way through a supporting turn here. There's also no director attached to the project.

In addition to starring, Robbie will co-produce and develop the film through her LuckyChap Entertainment label.

This will be Warner Bros.' second female-led superhero movie, following next year's Wonder Woman which puts Gal Gadot's Diana Prince in the spotlight.
