This morning came the news that Warner Bros. Pictures was lining up journalist turned acclaimed indie director Cathy Yan to helm a film based on DC Comics title “Birds of Prey” which would focus on Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

As a result of this, Variety reporter Justin Kroll reports that the other planned Harley Quinn-centric projects like David Ayer’s “Gotham City Sirens” and Gavin O’Connor’s “Suicide Squad 2” are going on the backburner.

So what happened? Kroll says that Christina Hodson’s script impressed the studio greatly, so much so the Quinn movie has been fast-tracked with filming to take place at the end of the year. Another reason is the project allows the introduction of Batgirl in a supporting role ahead of her getting her own solo film.

Hodson is also working on the “Batgirl” script. “Suicide Squad 2” was slated to begin production this Fall.
