Gotham City Sirens reportedly on hold due to Suicide Squad 2, Birds of Prey and Joker vs Harley

Despite being absent from the last two DC Films slate announcements by Warner Bros., Suicide Squad director David Ayer stated recently that development continues on Gotham City Sirens, the planned spinoff movie centring on Harley Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy.

However, with Margot Robbie gearing up for her return as Harley Quinn this year, The Wrap is reporting that Warner Bros. currently has three Harley movies on its development slate – and that Gotham City Sirens isn’t among them.

First up is Suicide Squad 2, with The Accountant helmer Gavin O’Connor writing and directing, and the project reportedly being lined up to shoot later this year once Will Smith wraps production on the sci-fi action thriller Gemini Man.

Warner Bros. Has Plans For Three Harley Quinn Movies

2016’s Suicide Squad may have received a critical response on par with finding a lump of dog shit on your shoe, but it still made a whole bunch of money. One of the few positively received aspects of the whole affair was Margot Robbie’s take on Harley Quinn, the Joker’s on again/off again girlfriend. This, perhaps, is not too surprising, though.

After all, Quinn has been a fan favorite since her debut on Batman: The Animated Series way back in 1992, before transferring to the DC Universe proper and subsequently appearing in all manner of Batman projects. Now, in the wake of the catastrophe that was Justice League, Warner Bros. are eager to capitalize on this success, and have no less than three projects in various stages of development that all circle around Robbie’s Quinn.

First up is the most obvious, Suicide Squad 2. Word is that Warner Bros.

Fan-Made Gotham City Sirens Trailer Teases What Could Be

In the wake of Justice League failing to live up to financial expectations at the box office, it seems only natural that Warner Bros. focus on DC films that are more likely to be surefire hits going forward. Obviously, one such entry into the Extended Universe that one would expect to sell more than a few tickets would be that of Suicide Squad 2, but I and many others are still hoping that another movie that’d feature Harley Quinn – Gotham City Sirens – eventually sees the light of day.

I say that because, while I may be an optimist, I’m also a realist. Sure, we may have heard rumblings all throughout 2017 about a flick set to unite Harley with the likes of Catwoman and Poison Ivy, but it’s impossible to overlook that whenever a Dceu film slate is touted at any sort of convention, Gotham City Sirens is

Elvis' Granddaughter Wants to Play Poison Ivy in Gotham City Sirens

Elvis' Granddaughter Wants to Play Poison Ivy in Gotham City Sirens
Riley Keough has informally thrown her name onto the list of hopeful actresses that want to play Poison Ivy on the big screen, with the character's next appearance scheduled for Gotham City Sirens. We haven't seen Pamela Isley in a movie since the disastrous Batman and Robin, from Joel Schumacher in 1997, when Uma Thurman took on the character. It's been over 20 years and fans should be able to wipe their collective memory of the campy portrayal. However, Fox's Gotham hasn't had the best track record with Poison Ivy on the small screen, either. That version of the character has gone through four changes since the show began, never finding the correct way to integrate Poison Ivy.

A fan on Twitter asked Elvis' granddaughter who she'd rather play in a movie, with a choice between Poison Ivy and Batgirl. The actress chose Poison Ivy and claimed that the character was her favorite,

Mad Max: Fury Road Actress Wants To Play Poison Ivy

We’ve had a couple of major actresses linked to the role of Batman villain Pamela Isley Aka Poison Ivy in the DC Extended Universe before now – including Megan Fox and Jessica Chastain. Seeing as those two haven’t been mentioned in connection with the part for a while, though, another actress has come forward to throw her hat into the ring.

In response to a Tweet from a fan who declared they would like to see her as either Batgirl or Poison Ivy, Mad Max: Fury Road‘s Riley Keough made clear that she supports the idea of joining the DC universe – particularly as her favourite character, Poison Ivy. Taking to Twitter, she wrote: I love Poison Ivy, she’s my favorite.

Keough, who you might have also recently seen in Logan Lucky earlier in the year, has been known to go red-headed for a variety of roles in the past,

Gotham City Sirens Is Still Happening with Director David Ayer

Gotham City Sirens Is Still Happening with Director David Ayer
One of the many Dceu projects in various stages of development is Gotham City Sirens, a movie which Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie seemed to will into existence practically on her own. The actress hired a writer to help develop the story, which she then took to Warner Bros., with David Ayer coming aboard to direct. That all seemingly changed in August, when a report claimed Gothm City Sirens was dead, but that was quickly debunked. While we haven't heard much more about the project since then, while promoting his new movie Bright, director David Ayer confirmed that it's still being worked on, in a brief statement.

"It's in development."

While that isn't a whole lot to go on, at least it's a confirmation that Gotham City Sirens is still happening. While the report that Gotham City Sirens being shut down was debunked, there weren't any details about when the

David Ayer Confirms Gotham City Sirens Still In Development

With Justice League a critical and commercial flop, the future of the Dceu is up in the air at the moment. No doubt there’s been some very serious meetings attended by very serious looking men on the Warner Bros. lot as they try and puzzle out how they could have got it so wrong, and one upshot of all this is that the slate of upcoming Dceu films is currently in flux, with various already announced/in production projects probably on hold. One of these seems to be Gotham City Sirens, intended to be helmed by Suicide Squad director David Ayer.

In what’s probably a bad sign for Harley Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, the film was even absent from the DC slate announced recently at Ccxp. That event confirmed that Wonder Woman 2, Batgirl, Shazam!, Aquaman, Green Lantern Corps, Flashpoint, The Batman, Suicide Squad 2, and Justice League Dark

Drew Barrymore's Hollywood E! Volution: From Child Star to Bad Girl to A-List Actress

Drew Barrymore's Hollywood E! Volution: From Child Star to Bad Girl to A-List Actress
No celebrity has had the kind of enduring career that Drew Barrymore has had in her 39 years in Hollywood. An offspring of the iconic Barrymore family, the 42-year-old leading lady has been acting since she was a mere 3-years-old. In 1982, Drew won our hearts in E.T. But then the cute kid grew up and turned into a wild child, starring in Poison Ivy in 1992 and Bad Girls in 1994—the same year she got married for the first time at only 19-years-old. Drew had some troubled times, but then she cleaned up her act and her acting roles started to change for the better after her spine-chilling cameo in the 1996 sleeper hit Scream. The bubbly star began nabbing big roles in big films like...

Why 'Misery' Is More Relevant in the Social-Media Age

Why 'Misery' Is More Relevant in the Social-Media Age
When you first came here, I only loved the writer part of Paul Sheldon…now I know I love the rest of him too." It was 25 years today that the Rob Reiner-directed adaptation of Stephen King's novel Misery was released — but its chilling, claustrophobic story about consumer/celebrity dynamics gives it a relevance that helps it run (or rather, hobble) laps around almost every stalker movie made before or after. Because as much as it's a parable about horrific obsession, it's also a story about how fans relate

The Price of Crazy: What Hollywood's 'stalker' genre says about mental health stigma

The Price of Crazy: What Hollywood's 'stalker' genre says about mental health stigma
Is Hollywood progressive? There seems to be a pervasive gap between what is preached and what is portrayed, and that's perhaps no more true than in the industry's historically shoddy treatment of mental illness on the silver screen. When it comes to humanizing sufferers of mental illness in films and on television, Tinseltown has for the most part come up woefully short; indeed, for every "Silver Linings Playbook" there are 10 "Single White Females." One of the most persistent offending traditions is the "stalker" film, a sub-genre jumpstarted by Clint Eastwood's hit 1971 thriller "Play Misty for Me" that continues to go strong more than 40 years later. The most recent example of this ongoing trend is Universal's "The Boy Next Door," an upcoming thriller that stars Jennifer Lopez as a high school teacher targeted by a dangerously obsessive student (Ryan Guzman). Important note: I haven't seen "The Boy Next Door" and

The '90s Tomboys I Had it Bad For

As a child of the '90s, I grew up consuming a lot of pop culture about girls my age or just a bit older. Although tomboys have been a part of TV, movies and books, it felt like most of my favorite things to re-watch or re-read had one among them. At the time, of course, I had no idea why that was, especially considering I was not a tomboy myself. But now it's very clear to me I was hardcore crushing on these girls and, in some cases, my unknowing gaydar was not far off.

Drew Barrymore Cries For the Whales ... And Everything Else

Drew Barrymore  started crying as little Gertie in "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" and pretty much never stopped.

In "Big Miracle," Drew Barrymore plays a Greenpeace activist who's leading a national effort to save three whales (named Fred, Wilma and Bam Bam, by the way) who are trapped under the ice. In honor of the tears of anger, frustration and eventually joy that she sheds throughout her noble crusade, Vulture has put together a montage of cryin' Drew from over the years (a sort of companion piece to the one starring Julianne Moore from a couple of years ago).

For the record, Drew apparently didn't cry at any point in "Donnie Darko," "Whip It" or the two "Charlie's Angels" films. But that might be it as far as "dry" Drew movies (although it looks like she's only almost about to cry in "Firestarter"). And we know for a fact that she

11 scary movies starring out actresses

Last year we compiled a list of horror films with lesbian or bisexual characters. This year, we thought we'd highlight out actresses who have appeared in some Halloween-worthy watching. From the classic to the contemporary, we've been in some of the best (and worst) scary movies.

Here are 11 movies you can find for your viewing (dis)pleasure this holiday.

Amanda Bearse in Fright Night

The actress played a teen named Amy Peterson in the 1985 original. She gets turned into a vampire, but is able to turn back into herself after the cure is discovered. Amanda came out eight years later — as a lesbian, not a vampire.

Portia de Rossi in Scream 2

Portia played a bitchy sorority sister in the 1997 sequel to the very successful Scream. She doesn't last too long, but she steals the scenes she's in with some sassy insults.

It's That Time of the Month….

by Colleen Wanglund

....and we all know what that means. Yep, it’s time for BleedFest, the monthly film festival showcasing independent female filmmakers and their work. Established by badass maverick filmmakers Elisabeth and Brenda Fies, BleedFest opened in L.A. July of 2010 and a few months later became a monthly staple on the film festival circuit. According to the festival’s website, “BleedFest fetes the women who love writing, producing, directing, and watching badass genre movies.” Those genres include horror, fantasy, sci-fi, erotica, action, western and exploitation (but Not of women).

The goal of BleedFest is to raise awareness of the talented female genre filmmakers who are being ignored by the Boy’s Club of Hollywood…..and there are many. The award given out at the festival is called the Inanna, named for the ancient Sumerian goddess of love, war, lust and fertility. The Innanna Certificate Award is given
