A Harley Quinn and friends movie? Yes please!
It was reported that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will be starring in a new standalone DC film featuring an all-star cast of female superheroes and villains. According to Hollywood Reporter, sources say that Robbie was the driving force of the project.
When the star first got the part for “Suicide Squad”, she started to study the villainess through the comic books. Apparently, the actress was so invested in the source material that she fell for the other female characters in the process. After that, she brought on a screenwriter to help work on the idea of an all-female DC film and presented it to the studios. And they loved it!
Details of the development are obviously close-guarded but names such as Batgirl (aka Barbara Gordon) and “Birds Of Prey” have been mentioned in ongoing discussions. Besides that, the script will also be written by a female writer.
Fans are speculating the feature film may be based on the premises of “Birds Of Prey” because the series focuses on a group of super heroines such as Batgirl, Black Canary, Huntress, Dove, and Catwoman. The popular female-centric comic book series was first published in the mid-90s.
Screen Rant stated that Robbie’s production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, will be producing the film. Although Warner Bros. hasn’t officially announced the film or set a release date, the news itself is enough to get us excited.
UPDATE (15th December, 4:15pm):
The upcoming all-female DC film finally has a name – “Gotham City Sirens”.
Director David Ayer will direct and produce the spin-off, with Margot Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn. The film is based on “Sirens”, a DC comic series that revolves around popular female villains from Batman’s rogue gallery, including Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
Besides that, it was reported that Megan Fox is eyeing one of the lead roles. According to Bleeding Cool, the actress has been ordering “Harley Quinn” comic books to study Poison Ivy. We think that Fox and Margot would make an interesting pair, don’t you think?
