DC’s film slate is getting bigger by the day. This time around, the Batgirl film is adding Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah as it’s directors. The pair, who directed last year’s Bad Boys For Life and the showrunners for the upcoming Ms. Marvel are on board for the Barbra Gordon centered film. Christina Hodson (Bumblebee, Birds of Prey, The Flash) is on board to write the screenplay. Kristin Burr, producer, had this to say about the film:

With Batgirl, we hope to take the audience on a fun ride and see a different side of Gotham. Christina’s script is crackling with spirit. Adil and Bilall have an excited and joyous energy which is infectious, making them the perfect filmmakers for this Batproject. And I’m just psyched I get to be part of the DC universe, which is super cool.

While the film is centered on the daughter of James Gordon, the plot is being kept under wraps for now. It’s planned as a movie for HBO Max. THR had the news on this story.
