Director Cathy Yan has reportedly been tapped to direct a DC Harley Quinn spinoff movie, based on the Birds Of Prey comic, with Margot Robbie set to star.
As Variety reports, Robbie’s own LuckyChap will be producing the flick, with Sue Kroll of Kroll & Co Entertainment and Bryan Unkeless of Clubhouse Pictures.
The entertainment source explains that Yan will be the second female filmmaker to direct a DC film and the first-ever Asian woman to direct a movie for DC.
The studio had reportedly been “weighing several Quinn options” before deciding on Birds Of Prey. The Birds of Prey are an all-female hero group founded by Batgirl, Black Canary and Huntress, as ComicBook.com reports, but it's not clear if these characters will be involved with the Harley-centered Birds of Prey movie.
Production is expected to start at the end of year, after Robbie finishes shooting Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the Charles Manson-themed movie where she's reportedly playing Sharon Tate.
Are you stoked to have a little more Harley Quinn in your life? We definitely are.
