The film will tilt on HBO Max, marking one of DC’s first major properties to debut exclusively on the streamer. Christina Hodson wrote the screenplay with Kristin Burr on the production.
While plot details are under wraps, it is known that Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Commissioner Gordon, will be the character behind the cape in this version. Gordon is the most established version of the Batgirl character and was first introduced in 1961 as Betty Kane.
Fraser, the elder Mummy star, experienced a resurgence in 2021 that began by landing the lead role in Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming film The whale. After wrapping the production on this, Martin Scorsese has given him a key role in his next film Moon Flower Killers, starting with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. He was also recently seen in the Steven Soderbergh film No sudden movement.
Fraser was replaced by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
