According to The Hollywood reporter, the actress inked a first-look deal for a Harley Quinn movie which she will also executive produce and another project:

“The actress already has two projects set at Warners: a Suicide Squad spinoff for her character Harley Quinn (as well as other DC heroines) that she will executive produce and an adaptation of Dean N. Jensen’s Queen of the Air to which she is attached to star.”

Although the premise for the spin-off has not yet been confirmed, there were already speculations that the movie would focus on the relationship between Harley Quinn and The Joker but now, rumors point to another storyline based on DC’s Birds Of Prey comic series. Whatever the story may be, it will hopefully be one based on her comic book series or amalgamation of various stories.
