Cathy Yan Is Warner Bros' Choice To Direct Margot Robbie In Next Harley Quinn Film

Cathy Yan is in early talks to direct Margot Robbie in the next Harley Quinn movie, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap. The news comes just weeks after Warner Bros. and DC tapped director Ava DuVernay to adapt The New Gods.

This lineup immediately establishes the Harley Quinn movie as a lady-centric affair, and makes this the second DCU movie to be directed by a woman, following the outstanding worked turned in by Patty Jenkins on Wonder Woman. Once the deal closes, Yan will become the first female Asian director to helm a superhero film.

This is a bold bet for Warner Bros' Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada, who oversee DC under Toby Emmerich.

The trade adds that the project will be based on Birds of Prey, which in the DC universe teams Quinn with several other crime fighters, namely Black Canary, Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) and Huntress, though Deadline adds that it is not confirmed if all of them will be characters in the film. That, plus Robbie's supposed insistence that she wanted to work with a female director on the film, led Warner Bros.to tap Yan. She helmed "Dead Pigs", which won the World Cinema Dramatic Award For Ensemble Acting at the Sundance Film Festival. The script was written by Christina Hodson, so most of the talent will be female.

While it's unknown if those specific characters made it into Yan's initial treatment, with Hodson working on the Batgirl script, it makes sense that Babs would make her debut in Birds of Prey first, which is looking to start production at the end of the year. That includes the Suicide Squad sequel to be directed by Gavin O'Connor.
