Margot Robbie & David Ayer Return for GOTHAM CITY SIRENS Movie
Harley Quinn is back...and she's bringing her director with her.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie's next appearance as DC Comics character Harley Quinn will be in Gotham City Sirens, a feature film starring the top female villains from the DC Universe.
The project, first reported in May, will be directed and produced by David Ayer, who directed Robbie in this year's movie adaptation of Suicide Squad. According to the article, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, writer of the Tomb Raider remake and Sherlock Holmes 3, is writing the screenplay. Robbie is also executive producing the film, and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and Jon Berg will also serve as producers.
The article also claims that Warner Bros. is still developing a Suicide Squad sequel as well as looking into a spinoff featuring Deadshot, the assassin character played by Will Smith.
Created in 2009, Gotham City Sirens was an ongoing series written by Paul Dini, co-creator of Harley Quinn, and drawn by Guillem March that explored the characters of Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Catwoman. When Catwoman fights a new villain named "Boneblaster", it was revealed she still had physical limitations from her ordeal in the Batman storyline "Heart of Hush" and was almost easily beaten by the two-bit thug. However, Poison Ivy arrived to save Catwoman and offered the two return to her new hideout, which was actually the Riddler's hideout, whom Poison Ivy had seduced and drugged. Catwoman also discovered Harley Quinn was also living with them, and proposed that the three women join together to protect one another as a team.
Gotham City Sirens currently doesn't have a release date, but the project is nreportedly on the fast track at Warner Bros.
