Warner Bros. taps David Ayer to direct Harley Quinn led Gotham City Sirens

David Ayer is reuniting with Warner Bros. for another DC movie, and it’s a Suicide Squad sequel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ayer is set to reunite with Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie in order to direct Gotham City Sirens, a film that will feature some of DC’s most popular female characters.

Ayer will direct and produce the film while Robbie will be reprising her role of Harley Quinn and executive producing the film as well. Gotham City Sirens was a comic book series back in 2009 that focused on a team made up of Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Catwoman.

The film is set to be written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet who has worked on the scripts for the Tomb Raider remake and Sherlock Holmes 3, which are both films that Warner Bros. has a part in. DC Film heads Geoff Johns and Jon Berg will also serve as producers on the film.

While Suicide Squad had a tough production and met with divisive reviews from fans and critics, it still managed to pull in $745.6 million at the worldwide box office. A Suicide Squad sequel is being developed, and a possible Will Smith Deadshot spinoff is being looked at, but the Harley Quinn ensemble project is the one furthest along and is getting the bigger push because of the praise Robbie’s Quinn received.

This would give the DC Extended Universe it’s the second female-led film following next year’s Wonder Woman.

There is no release date for the film, but recent moves with the Batman film and the now pushed back Justice League 2 shows that Warner Bros. DC films schedule is in flux and is open to change. With other films like The Flash having issues, having lost two directors, Gotham City Sirens could be a film that easily slides into an open schedule slot.
