Yan is set to direct a DC Film featuring Margot Robbie’s fan-favorite Suicide Squad character, Harley Quinn. 

The project is based on the Birds of Prey comics which debuted in 1995. The team is female-led and has included many characters such as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and Katana.

Recently, Christina Hodson was hired to write Batgirl. TheWrap’s Umberto Gonzalez revealed on Twitter she blew WB executives away with her Birds of Prey script. Variety’s Justin Kroll also cosigns that report:



Production is expected to begin at the end of the year following Robbie’s work on Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Meanwhile, Gavin O’ Connor’s Suicide Squad sequel will no longer shoot in 2018.



Robbie’s LuckyChap produces, with Kroll & Co Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures.  

Does this mean Gotham City Sirens and the Harley Quinn project were combined as one? It’s quite possible. News has been quiet regarding the former and this could be a way to feature all of these characters in one movie and also introduce DCU’s Batgirl
