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.

International Monetary Fund expects India's economy to grow at 7.4% in 2018
The IMF also said the country's economy could grow by 2.9 percent in 2019, the same expansion as forecast earlier. It also upgraded its forecast for USA growth in 2018 to 2.9%, up from 2.7% previously.

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.
