Suicide Squad director joins Margot Robbie for female DC villains movie.

Margot Robbie is set to reprise her role of Harley Quinn for an all-female DC villains movie.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Gotham City Sirens will reunite the star with her Suicide Squad director, David Ayer. Robbie will also act as executive producer. The project will be scripted by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who is also behind the forthcoming Tomb Raider reboot.

The film will take its inspiration from a recent comic series about murderous women from Batman’s past. Quinn is the only confirmed character as yet but other potential villains include Catwoman and Poison Ivy.

"I’m so not done playing that character yet and there’s so much more to do with her, I think, and as anyone who’s read the comics knows, there’s a million different storylines to explore," Robbie said in an interview earlier this year. "There’s just so much you can do in the DC Universe, so I think it would be cool."
