Actor Margot Robbie is all set to reprise her Suicide Squad role of Harley Quinn. A recent report had claimed that actors Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jurnee Smolett-Bell and Janelle Monae are in the running for the role of Black Canary, while Margaret Qualley, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Cristin Milioti are testing for Huntress.

The project will be produced by Sue Kroll, Robbie and Brian Unkeless. Robbie had earlier said that Birds of Prey will start shooting next January and will be made with a "much smaller budget" for a DC movie. "I've been working on it for two years now. I mean, it's hard to kinda talk about it 'cause all this stuff is kinda under lock and key, but yeah, no, I've been working on a separate spin-off for Harley, thing, for a while now," Robbie had earlier told MTV News in an interview.

The 28-year-old actor is attached to play Quinn in three more projects, that she will topline. Following the character's debut in Suicide Squad, Robbie and director David Ayer were confirmed to be developing spin-off film Gotham City Sirens, while Crazy Stupid Love directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa were in talks to write and helm a movie about 'Harley and Joker'.
