Film Casting: Matt Damon in BOURNE IDENTITY 5, Margot Robbie is Harley Quinn in SUICIDE SQUAD

Matt Damon

The Bourne Identity 5 and Suicide Squad have made recent film casting, screenwriting, and director news. These films come from movie studios primarily based in the United States. The castings, screenwriters, and directors are subject to change.

Suicide Squad

we have now learned from sources that [Maggie Robbie] will play Harley Quinn. For those who don’t know the character, she was introduced in Batman: The Animated Series as the Joker’s girlfriend/henchwoman, and has gone on to become a popular rogue/anti-hero in her own right…Her origin is tied in with the Clown Prince of Crime, and while I don’t know how far Suicide Squad will delve into their history, it’s necessary to have the two together.

She’s another one of the Joker’s sick jokes since she was a psychiatrist at Arkham Asylum (her real name is “Harleen Quinzel”) who tried analyzing the Joker, and he psychologically manipulated her into being infatuated with him. The best Harley Quinn stories have managed to balance both the tragedy of her situation with the character’s lighthearted nature.

“Yes, next year,” Damon responded to E! News when asked for clarification. “It’ll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out. [Director] Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that’s all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes.”
