The Suicide Squad writer/director James Gunn lobbed some very high praise in the direction of Harley Quinn actor Margot Robbie.
"Yes. She might be the best actor I've ever worked with," Gunn said on Instagram when a fan asked if he started working with Robbie yet.
The Suicide Squad will mark Robbie's third turn as the havoc creating Harley Quinn, after the previous 2016 film and a turn in the upcoming Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
Its been a big year for Robbie, who became a household name after her role in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. Besides appearing in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood this summer, the trailer for the upcoming Birds of Prey was recently released.
