I must admit, when I first woke up this morning, I noticed a headline mentioning Margot Robbie’s name alongside the word suicide. And since I was still half asleep, I thought the headline was saying she committed suicide. It was a difficult five seconds in my life. I actually thought about killing myself for a few seconds.
But the good news is that Margot Robbie did not take her own life. The headline was actually talking about the breaking news regarding David Ayer’s Suicide Squad film. According to multiple sources, Robbie will play Harley Quinn in the film, which is scheduled to be released in 2016. The film has been described as, “The Dirty Dozen with supervillains” by director/writer David Ayer.
You may remember a few weeks ago when we learned the details surrounding this film, we mentioned that Ayer was recruiting an all-star cast for this movie. Names like Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling and Tom Hardy. We said then that it would be hard for him to land every star, and we were correct. Ryan Gosling reportedly passed on playing The Joker because he didn’t want to sign a deal with options for multiple movies.
According to rumors floating around this past weekend, Jared Leto is now the favorite to take on The Joker role. Nothing has been signed, but it does appear Jared Leto is up for the challenge.
As always, we will keep you updated.
