David Ayer set to direct Margot Robbie's Gotham City Sirens

News arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Margot Robbie is set to reunite with Suicide Squad (2016) director David Ayer for Gotham City Sirens, which will focus on some of the more famous female villains from the DC Comics canon.

The project has been in the works for a while, spearheaded partly by Robbie herself, who became interested in Harley Quinn's backstory and the comics in general as she did her research to play the character in Suicide Squad.

While Christina Hodson (Shut In) had been writing the script, The Hollywood Reporter's update on the project has Geneva Robertson-Dworet now taking it over, and adapting Paul Dini and Guillem March's Sirens comic book, which featured characters such as Catwoman, Poison Ivy and others, with the main trio forming a team.

While there is a Suicide Squad follow-up and other potential spin-offs already in development, Gotham City Sirens appears to be the one with the most traction. So Ayer will start developing it once he finishes up on Bright for Netflix.
