Cathy Yan In Talks To Helm Harley Quinn Film

Former Wall Street Journal reporter turned filmmaker Cathy Yan (“Dead Pigs”) has begun talks to join the DC universe.

Heat Vision reports Yan is being lined up to direct a currently untitled film at Warner Bros. Pictures featuring Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn character following her first appearance in “Suicide Squad”.

The film is expected to be based on the “Birds of Prey” comic book property, a female-led team that debuted in 1995 and included characters such as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Poison Ivy, Catwoman and Katana.

Christina Hodson, who was hired to work on the “Batgirl” film last week, is penning the script.
