David Ayer and Margot Robbie helming all female villian DC movie

David Ayer is back in the business of DC comics villains.

The filmmaker, who directed Warner Bros.’ all-bad guy comic book movie Suicide Squad, is reuniting with that film’s star, Margot Robbie, for Gotham City Sirens, a feature project that will showcase the top female villains from the DC stable, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Ayer will direct and produce the project with Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn, the part-time girlfriend of the Joker who is currently DC's most popular female character. Robbie is also executive producing.

Sirens was a recent comic series from DC that focused on the popular villainesses from Batman’s rogue gallery. Among them were Quinn, Catwoman, Batman’s sometime love interest, and Poison Ivy, who uses plants and their toxins to get what she wants.

Geneva Robertson-Dworet, a top female writer in the action sphere who has also penned scripts for the Tomb Raider remake and Warners' own Sherlock Holmes 3, is writing the screenplay.

The heads of DC’s film arm, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg, will also be involved in a producorial role.

Suicide Squad was a tough production and the movie underwent some reshoots but it all turned out fine for all parties involved as the movie grossed over $745.6 million global. It is now the 13th highest-grossing superhero release of all-time domestically and has surpassed the international box office of Deadpool, a movie to which it was often compared to in terms of tone.

The studio is still developing a Squad sequel as well as looking into a spin-off featuring Deadshot, the assassin character played by Will Smith. But this project was the most furthest along, and with Robbie’s Quinn having received near universal praise from Squad, this was the most natural project for Ayer with which to make his Warners return. The filmmaker is currently nearing the end of principal photography for Bright, his fantasy thriller for Netflix that stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton.

Warner doesn’t have a release date for Sirens, but the project is now on the fast-track.

Any movie that has the word "fast-track" attached to it is a red flag.

Harley and Ivy in a live action movie together? You know what that means.



What a time to be alive. I bet the LGBT crowd will be "head over heels."

Anyone else think it's weird that WB and Ayer are working together on a DC movie again?

Does this take the place of the Harley Quinn solo movie being produced by Robbie?

Harley was the best thing about Suicide Squad, so I'm in.

Just hope the studio doesn't butcher it like their other films.

Gotta love WB/DC doubling down on directors that delivered mediocre movies that were universally panned. What could go wrong?

They truly have no creative direction of any kind.

It'd be like, they throw out dates for the Flash movie part 1, 2, and 3, and then Iris Allen gets a lot of good buzz when the first one comes out, all of a sudden out of nowhere there's surprise announcements about Iris Allen: The Movie and Iris Allen & Friends: The Movie and now the whole schedule of all the other movies in the lineup have to be rearranged. They are literally throwing **** against the wall and seeing what sticks, every movie in so far.

Lame, dumb, dumb.

Can't argue with that.

So basically, this will be Gotham Sirens? Ivy, Selina, and Harley? Miiiiiiight be okay. We'll see.

Honestly the concept itself sounds like a load of fun. But since this is the DCEU we're talking about, the finished film will be so reluctant, so unwilling to give the audience "fun" - it's just going to be a dreary, drab tale of incomprehensible misery just like MoS and BvS.

Just watch the old "Gotham Girls" Flash animations from the DCAU days. I'm sure they're way more enjoyable than whatever this film will be.

I'm assuming Robbie pushed for Ayer to get this gig. At least WB has someone else involved with the script.

Eva Green for Catwoman please.

I have some faith in this. There's enough "hook" for a story, enough good source material. Some of my favorite characters. (Reimage Poison Ivy so that she can FINALLY have a decent live-action portrayal, PLEASE!!!)

Whereas I'm not interested in a solo Deadshot flick. At all. But hey, Will Smith...

I haven't seen Gotham, but you'd have to try really, really hard to do worse than Uma Thurman.

David Ayer is a team player. He didn't throw WB under the bus when people were crapping on Suicide Squad, and I bet they appreciate that.

Suicide Squad made over $700 million, and people are wondering why WB isn't sticking with the same director?

What?

Gah. Like I said, we REALLY need a better Poison Ivy on the big screen. Stat.

Because they clearly had no faith in his vision for the movie and had a third party put together a cut of the film. Why would you bring that person back if you didn't like what he did in the first place?
