Purpose of this Trailer

Filmmakers Matthew Merz and Asia Lampley intend to rally up excitement around this novel rendition of DC Comics’ most tumultuous relationship. After funds are raised, the filmmakers will look to cast SAG and non-union actors for the 20-page short written by Lampley.It is their hope that they can attach A-list stars such as Kerry Washington, Paula Patton, or Mila Kunis to the project as Harley Quinn. The filmmakers would love to hear feedback from Batman and/or DC Comic fans as to what the next move for Harley’s story should be following the short. Is it a feature film? Web-series? Comic book?

Synopsis

The Clown Prince of Gotham and his muse Harley Quinn wreck havoc on the city, which is set near the bayous of New Orleans during Prohibition. With free admission to hooch parlors (by force of course) and total disregard for the law, the two sociopaths enjoy a life of recreational felonies. That is, until Harley’s feelings get in the way of the Joker’s fun. When Harley requests for an engagement with the scoundrel, the Joker responds, “like I told you before, doll, I don’t do handcuffs.” In order to appease his partner in crime and for his own entertainment, Joker challenges Harley to bring him the big cheese—Lex Luthor—in exchange for an engagement ring. When the Joker fails to deliver on his promise, Harley resorts to more desperate measures, namely voodoo. Unfortunately Harley’s plan goes awry, resulting in a crazed woman scorned from then on, endangering all those who stand in her way, even her man. The non-traditional take on DC Comics’ deadliest dynamic has a dark twist in the climax that will carve interest in even the most loyal Harley Quinn fans.
