Cathy Yan To Direct 'Birds Of Prey' For DC Films

According to Deadline, Cathy Yan will be stepping behind the camera for the next Harley Quinn movie. She helmed "Dead Pigs", which won the World Cinema Dramatic Award For Ensemble Acting at the Sundance Film Festival. She will also be the first Asian woman to helm a movie from the DC Comics universe.

The girl gang movie is being written by screenwriter Christina Hodson, and it will be produced by Robbie, Kroll & Co Entertainment's Sue Kroll, and Clubhouse Pictures' Bryan Unkeless. The project for the independent Harley Quinn film is based on Birds of Prey, in which Quinn joins other crime fighters like Black Canary and Batgirl. It's not confirmed if all these characters will make it to the final cut of the film. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the DC slate as we learn it.

Calling the IRS will not yield different results from those available online, nor will ordering a tax transcript. If you make more than this cut off, sorry, but you'll have to shell out some cash for another online service.

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. The studio had been weighing several Quinn options, including a "Suicide Squad" sequel with Gavin O'Connor, before picking "Birds of Prey". Beyond that, she's mostly worked on short films as a producer and writer.

Today brings news about one such project, the forthcoming Harley Quinn spin-off movie, which will - as you surely know - star Margot Robbie, who'll be reprising her role from 2016's Suicide Squad.
