Harley Quinn SOLO MOVIE Gets A Female Director
Here's all the details on who will be directing the solo Harley Quinn movie.
Having seen Patty Jenkins steer the Wonder Woman movie to critical and commercial acclaim, Warner has decided that female directors are the way forward for the DCU, with Cathy Yan in line to helm the studio’s upcoming Harley Quinn spin-off.
Yan’s Sundance smash Dead Pigs was her feature debut, but it looks to have impressed the right people at Warner, who are keen to get her signed up sooner rather than later.
The new movie will focus on Margot Robbie’s returning Harley but will also feature other DCU anti-heroines like Poison Ivy and Catwoman. It will be loosely based on the Birds Of Prey series of comics, which sees Quinn form a super-team of female badasses.
Robbie will also reprise her role in the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel, which is set to begin production later this year. Gavin O’Connor has written the script for that one, and is currently in talks to step behind the camera too. Looks like Daddy’s Little Monster isn’t going to be off our screens any time soon!
