According to Deadline, Cathy Yan will be stepping behind the camera for the next Harley Quinn movie. Warner Bros. reportedly made a conscious effort to hire a female director for this Harley Quinn project.

Yan will be the second female filmmaker to direct a DC film, followed by Patty Jenkin's "Wonder Woman".

Yan is a former Wall Street Journal reporter who directed numerous short films before making her feature debut. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the DC slate as we learn it.

DC Comics' Birds of Prey are an worldwide crimefighting team featuring heroines such as Oracle (Barbara Gordon), Black Canary (Dinah Laurel Lance) and the Huntress (Helena Bertinelli).

Yan is the director behind Dead Pigs, which won the World Cinema Dramatic Award for Ensemble Acting at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The script was written by Christina Hodson, who wrote the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, and just got hired to write the Batgirl movie.

The film is looking to start production within the year. She is negotiating to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in the Quentin Tarantino-directed film for Sony Pictures.

There are several other Harley Quinn projects in the works, including a "Suicide Squad" sequel and "Harley Quinn Vs The Joker" and "Gotham City Sirens". She'll also produce the film under her LuckyChap Entertainment banner as part of a first look deal she has with the studio.
