Report: Warner Bros. Moves Forward with the Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey Movie
In spite of the awfulness of Suicide Squad, we were ecstatic to hear that Warner Bros. had planned a Harley Quinn spin-off. Margot Robbie was one of the few good things about that mess of a movie, and she was not only set to star, but to executive produce and personally bring on female writers and a female director. Now, it looks like that plan is coming to fruition, as a new report claims that the Harley Quinn movie has found a writer—and may confirm that the Birds of Prey will appear.

According to The Wrap, the Harley Quinn movie has recruited Christina Hodson, who has quickly climbed the ranks of Hollywood screenwriters, to pen the film. Hodson had three different scripts make the Black List in the last four years, and recently had her original horror script, "Shut In," released as a feature film. Her script was also chosen for the upcoming Bumblebee solo film in the Transformers franchise.

The report also continuously refers to the movie as the Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey spinoff, but doesn't specify whether that's new intel or an assumption. One would think that if they are speaking to inside sources, then they're basing that characterization on their statements, but that's just conjecture at this point.
