Harley Quinn Team-Up Movie “Birds of Prey” Finally Gets a Director

Well, more Harley Quinn will not hurt, right?

According to Deadline, it seems Warner Bros  is very close to signing Cathy Yan  to direct the Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn spin-off movie Birds of Prey. It seems WB were impressed with her idea and direction on which the movie will go. Yan has only directed one movie Dead Pigs, which won the World Cinema Dramatic Award For Ensemble Acting at Sundance earlier this year

Birds of Prey will likely feature other harley “girl gangs” like Gotham’s famous burglary Catwoman and Poison Ivy as well as female heroes like Black Canary, Batgirl  as they did in the comics.

The script is being penned by Christina Hodson (Transformer: Bumblebee) who is also writing the recently announced Batgirl movie.

Deadline states that Birds of Prey is expected to commence production early 2019
