Breaking news folks! According to an earlier report from Deadline and now The Wrap, Warner Bros. and DC Films are officially moving forward with a Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey spin-off film, which will feature Margot Robbie in one of the lead roles as Harley Quinn.
The good folks over at Deadline officially broke the story earlier this afternoon and then was followed up by The Wrap revealing that up-and-coming screenwriter Christina Hodson is currently working on the script for the Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey movie.
The film would feature a mostly female cast with Margot Robbie spearheading the cast. This comes months after it was first reported that Margot Robbie had already inked a production deal with Warner Bros. and for her Harley Quinn spin-off film.
According to Inverse.com:
The current Birds of Prey comic, Batgirl & the Birds of Prey, follows Batgirl, Huntress, and Black Canary team-up to pursue a mysterious person using Batgirl’s old name, Oracle, to commit crimes around Gotham.
Christina Hodson is a Black List screenwriter who was also recently attached to a solo Bumblebee spin-off from Paramount’s Transformers franchise. Her other scripts, The Eden Project and a reboot of The Fugitive, were both sold to Sony and Warner Bros., respectively.
