Cathy Yan to Direct Margot Robbie Harley Quinn Film


Cathy Yan has been tapped to direct a Harley Quinn movie starring Margot Robbie as, well, Harley Quinn. The project is supposed begin filming sometime later this year.

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn in SUICIDE SQUAD

We’ve been down this road before with this project as SUICIDE SQUAD director David Ayer was originally tapped to direct a GOTHAM CITY SIRENS movie for WB.  There’s a report that this is going to be based on BIRDS OF PREY, but with Harley, it sounds more like GCS than BOP, yes?  I suspect that this film is a different thing altogether.  Also, where does this film when it comes to DC on film and Batman?  Clearly, if a film with Harley Quinn, the Birds of Prey and/or the Gotham City Sirens, it’s pretty-much a “Batman Film,” right?

It’s going to be interesting to see how this project plays out and if it ends up coming to fruition in the end. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
