Margot Robbie, David Ayer Making All-Female DC Villain Movie, Gotham City Sirens

gotham_city_sirens_05According to The Hollywood Reporter, Margot Robbie is teaming up with Suicide Squad director David Ayer to produce Gotham City Sirens, a movie that will feature a cast of all-female DC Comics villains, with Ayer directing and Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn.

Gotham City Sirens was a pretty awesome comic book by Paul Dini and Guillem March that stared Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn living together in a house and going on zany adventures. It was sadly canceled after only 26 issues (and several creative team changes) to make way for the DC Nu52 Reboot. It's unclear whether the movie will be based on the comic, or is just borrowing its name.

Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider, Sherlock Holmes 3) will write the script, with Geoff "Jeff" Johns and Jon Berg also producing.

Here's a sequence from Gotham City Sirens #9 that still makes me laugh years later:



About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
