We have known for a while that Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn – as played on the big screen by Margot Robbie – would be leading a female focused DC Expanded Universe standalone movie. Things have now moved on a little, with news arriving The Wrap that Christina Hodson (Shut In) is attached as the writer.
In addition to starring, Robbie is attached to produce the movie for DC Entertainment and Warner Bros, though the project is still at a relatively early stage of development. The plan is for it to feature several female characters from the DC canon, including the unconfirmed idea of the Birds Of Prey.
Hodson has won plaudits for her scripts, including speculative script The Eden Project, and various re-writes on other movies such as the new take on The Fugitive. Her one produced credit, thriller Shut In (2016), recently kicked off its box office run, but she has also been working with the group of writers coming up with ideas and screenplays for new Transformers movies, and Hodson's Bumblebee solo screenplay is one of those moving ahead.
There is no word on when we might see the Harley Quinn movie, but it certainly sounds like Warners and DC are still excited by the idea.
