Actress Margot Robbie is dishing the dirty on her Harley Quinn spin-off movie. Robbie said the Harley Quinn spin-off movie could be "an R-rated girl gang film". She's been trying to make the spin-off ever since she starred as Harley in 'Suicide Squad.' Robbie revealed some of the ideas she's pitched to the movie studio. I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, 'Harley needs friends.' "I wasn't seeing enough girl gangs on screen, especially in the action space. So that was always a big part of it. Robbie also revealed she was eager to find a female director for the movie.
