Harley Quinn spin-off film starring Margot Robbie eyes director

DC Comics' Birds of Prey are an worldwide crimefighting team featuring heroines such as Oracle (Barbara Gordon), Black Canary (Dinah Laurel Lance) and the Huntress (Helena Bertinelli).

The next DC Comics-inspired film to star Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn is on the way, and it could be directed by 2018 Sundance Film Festival breakout director Cathy Yan.

DC's new gang of female characters has found a ringleader.

If the deal is finalized, Yan will become the first female Asian director to helm a superhero film, and will join Wonder Woman's Patty Jenkins as only the second woman to direct a DC Films feature.

This is a bold bet for Warner Bros' Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada, who oversee DC under Toby Emmerich. This one is being written by Christina Hodson, the screenwriter on the Bumblee Transformers spin-off and DC's Batgirl.

Wells Fargo (WFC) Receives Buy Rating from Sandler O'Neill
Moreover, Mirador Cap Partners Ltd Partnership has 1.83% invested in Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC ) for 55,055 shares. It dropped, as 51 investors sold HD shares while 662 reduced holdings. 92 funds opened positions while 197 raised stakes.

This film looks cleared to start production by year's end or early next year, after Robbie completes Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Deadline reports it was Robbie herself who pushed for a female director on the new movie. That's all very encouraging, especially to those of us who could've maybe done with 75% less gratuitous Harley Quinn ass-shots in Suicide Squad. Beyond that, she's mostly worked on short films as a producer and writer.

There are several other Harley Quinn projects in the works, including a "Suicide Squad" sequel and "Harley Quinn Vs The Joker" and "Gotham City Sirens".

In that film, a mysterious stream of pig carcasses floats silently toward China's populous economic hub, Shanghai.
