Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson has been tapped to pen the studios' planned Batgirl film, according to The Wrap. Back in February, writer/director Joss Whedon confirmed he had stepped down from the Batgirl project.
Hodson's Harley Quinn-starring Birds of Prey script is already being sent out to prospective directors to gauge interest.
Hodson has become a in-demand writer around Hollywood, penning Paramount's Transformers spin-off Bumblebee and Warner Bros.'s The Fugitive remake.
No release date for Batgirl has been set.
