David Ayer to direct Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn movie ‘Gotham City Sirens’

David Ayer is back in the DC Extended Universe!

The Suicide Squad director is reuniting with Margot Robbie for her Harley Quinn and friends spin-off movie, Gotham City Sirens. In addition to Harley Quinn, the movie will feature some of the top female villains from DC Comics, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In addition to directing, David Ayer will also be a producer on the movie along with Margot Robbie, who worked hard to get this project started after falling in love with Harley Quinn while making Suicide Squad.

Shortly after this news broke, Ayer confirmed it with one simple tweet:

Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who has also wrote scripts for the Tomb Raider reboot and Sherlock Holmes 3, is writing the screenplay. There is no release date set, but The Hollywood Reporter says that Gotham City Sirens is being fast-tracked!

Also worth noting from The Hollywood Reporter’s story is that a Suicide Squad sequel is still planned. A Deadshot spin-off starring Will Smith is also being discussed.
