DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have chosen Cathy Yan to be the director of an untitled girl gang movie, likely the next superhero film to be graced by Suicide Squad scene-stealer Harley Quinn, in the form of Margot Robbie. A deal has to be completed, but it is expected that Yan will become the second female filmmaker to join the DC club after Wonder Woman‘s Patty Jenkins, and the first female Asian director ever tapped to direct a superhero film.

This is a bold bet for Warner Bros’ Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada, who oversee DC under Toby Emmerich. Yan got the job over numerous well established male directors, and because she is taking this giant leap with just one small-budget indie movie under her belt. That would be Dead Pigs, a film that won the World Cinema Dramatic Award For Ensemble Acting at Sundance last January. Despite being a new talent, Yan’s presentation for Birds of Prey was exceptional, and Robbie held firm to her desire for this film to be directed by a woman.

Robbie’s LuckyChap is producing with Sue Kroll and her Kroll & Co Entertainment and Bryan Unkeless of Clubhouse Pictures. Robbie and Unkeless produced I, Tonya.

The project is based on Birds of Prey, which in the DC universe teams Quinn with several other crime fighters, namely Black Canary, Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) and Huntress. It is not confirmed if all of them will be characters in the film. What is clear is that both the main characters and most of the creative braintrust are female, remarkable for a studio-sized superhero film. The script was written by Christina Hodson, who wrote the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, and just got hired to write the Batgirl movie.

This film looks cleared to start production by year’s end or early next year, after Robbie completes Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. She is negotiating to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in the Quentin Tarantino-directed film for Sony Pictures. The other Harley Quinn films are still under construction. That includes the Suicide Squad sequel to be directed by Gavin O’Connor. Two others, Harley Quinn Vs The Joker and Gotham City Sirens with Suicide Squad helmer David Ayer, seem further in the distance.

Back to Yan. She was a Wall Street Journal reporter who worked from New York, Hong Kong and Beijing, and one of the paper’s youngest reporters to land multiple stories on the front page. She wrote and directed numerous short films before stepping up to features with Dead Pigs.

In that film, a mysterious stream of pig carcasses floats silently toward China’s populous economic hub, Shanghai. As authorities struggle to explain the phenomenon, characters intersect. They include a down-and-out pig farmer with a youthful heart struggles to make ends meet, an upwardly mobile landowner fighting gentrification against an American expat seeking a piece of the Chinese dream, a romantic busboy hides his job from his father, and a rich young woman struggling to find her independence.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – The lady may protest too much, but she’s about to get her due.

On Thursday, ABC announced it is partnering with Margot Robbie’s production company LuckyChap, as well as Hoodlum and ABC International, to produce a 10-part series retelling the works of Shakespeare from the female perspective.

According to ABC, the project will be led by a female creative team and produce 10 standalone episodes. Each episode will be based on one of Shakespeare’s most celebrated plays updated to reflect our contemporary world. The project will be produced in Australia and filming is set to begin in late 2018.

“We are thrilled about this Australian partnership as an opportunity to showcase unique, distinctly female voices in writing, and to demonstrate the high quality of the Australian film and television industry. The project will share diverse points of view, from writers representing the different cultures and areas within Australia, which many would not readily associate with works of Shakespeare,” said LuckyChap Entertainment in a statement.

The project is intended to reflect a wide range of cultures and areas. Giula Sandler created the concept and will oversee the series, as well as writing one episode.

Managing Director of ABC Studios International Keli Lee said, “ABC Studios International is thrilled to be a partner in this unique project. This production is a chance to create something classic yet boldly original and modern. The works of Shakespeare are iconic and this will present them in a way they’ve never been seen before.” (source)

Robbie said she was very excited to star in Tarantino’s ninth film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

“So yes, I will need to start researching,” she said.

Tarantino’s film has so far been shrouded in secrecy but Variety has confirmed that Leonardo DiCaprio will also star in the film.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – As if Oscar day wasn’t big enough for Aussie actress Margot Robbie, who was attending the show as a nominee for Best Actress for her starring role in I, Toyna, on top of that immense honor, Chanel announced on the same day she has become an ambassador for the iconic French fashion house.

To begin their partnership, the first-time nominee is expected to wear (she wore) a custom Chanel Haute Couture dress made by Karl Lagerfeld himself. The actress’ stylist Kate Young said on Saturday that she wanted Robbie’s look for the Oscars to highlight her youth and be “very cool and representative of her as a person.”

The intricate gown took more than 550 hours of work, according to Chanel, and is worn with Chanel Fine Jewelry as well as Chanel makeup. Said Young, “Sometimes evening gowns for the Oscars can be aging, in a way, with heavy embroidery or heavy jewelry. The embroidery on this dress is really modern and interesting.”

She also hinted that Robbie’s wearing diamonds for the occasion, “because I love the energy into big stones.” Wearing large stones, she added, can make one “look like the Queen of England in a hot second, so part of it was finding diamonds that felt cool and authentic.” (source)
