Cathy Yan Will Direct Margot Robbie in HARLEY QUINN Film

Margot Robbie Pushed for a Female Director on the Harley Quinn Spin-Off—and Got One

It looks like Warner Bros.is lining up their next superhero movie. While the MCU have yet to give a woman solo directorship of one of its MCU films, the DCEU has just secured its second solo female director.

Cathy Yan is in line to direct DC Films' Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey movie, according to Deadline.

DC Comics' Birds of Prey are an worldwide crimefighting team featuring heroines such as Oracle (Barbara Gordon), Black Canary (Dinah Laurel Lance) and the Huntress (Helena Bertinelli). Despite being a new talent, Yan's presentation for Birds of Prey was exceptional, and Robbie held firm to her desire for this film to be directed by a woman.

Yan would come into the Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey project after her most recent film, Dead Pigs, won Sundance's World Cinema Dramatic Award for Ensemble Acting.


DC's new gang of female characters has found a ringleader. The script was written by Christina Hodson, who wrote the "Transformers" spinoff "Bumblebee" and was hired to replace Joss Whedon in penning the "Batgirl" movie.

Robbie's LuckyChap is producing with Sue Kroll and her Kroll & Co Entertainment, along with Bryan Unkeless of Clubhouse Pictures. Robbie is close to signing a deal to star as Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", so production on the DC movie won't start until after that film is completed.

There are several other Harley Quinn projects in the works, including a "Suicide Squad" sequel and "Harley Quinn Vs The Joker" and "Gotham City Sirens".
