It looks like Warner Bros.is lining up their next superhero movie. While the MCU have yet to give a woman solo directorship of one of its MCU films, the DCEU has just secured its second solo female director.
Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment have chosen relative newcomer Cathy Yan to direct Margot Robbie in an untitled Harley Quinn movie, Deadline confirms. She will be the first Asian American woman to direct a superhero film.
Supreme Court not in favour of handing over Kathua case to CBI
The plea was filed by the father of the eight-year-old Asifa who was gang-raped, tortured and killed in Kathua in January. He added, "we are depending on information from social media.We are handicapped". "We are handicapped", he said.
There are a lot of Harley Quinn-centric films in development, as Robbie herself has said. She helmed "Dead Pigs", which won the World Cinema Dramatic Award For Ensemble Acting at the Sundance Film Festival. What is clear is that both the main characters and most of the creative braintrust are female, remarkable for a studio-sized superhero film.
Bertucci's the latest restaurant chain to declare bankruptcy
The deal is valued at roughly $20 million, the Wall Street Journal reported. The chain intends to sell its assets, it said in a release Monday.
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. Production is expected to begin at the end of this year after Robbie wraps filming on Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. That includes the Suicide Squad sequel to be directed by Gavin O'Connor.
Warner Bros. knew Harley Quinn was a breakout character from Suicide Squad, and it's interesting to see that they've chose to go with Birds of Prey over Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens, or a Harley & Joker movie.
