Harley Quinn Spinoff Birds of Prey Hires Director
Warner Bros.’ Harley Quinn spinoff movie Birds of Prey has found its director.
Variety reports Cathy Yan will direct the film. She’s set to become the second female director to helm a DC movie following Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman). Christina Hodson, the writer behind the upcoming Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, penned the script. Hodson has also recently been tapped to write the Batgirl movie.
Production on Birds of Prey is expected to begin by the end of the year after Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) wraps up filming Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Last month it was reported she’s in talks to play Sharon Tate in Tarantino’s new film.
