Margot Robbie confirms working on "separate spinoff" Harley Quinn movie
When Gotham City Sirens got announced, everyone assumed that's what it morphed into. "It's a totally separate one". It's possible Robbie is talking about the solo Harley Quinn movie that had Christina Hodson attached as writer.

However, the main reasons for this deal appear linked to 21st Century Fox being in need of cash after its attempt to buy Sky News in the United Kingdom has seemingly stalled and a major investor and supporter on the 21st Century Fox board (ahem) is predisposed after being arrested in Saudi Arabia. Robert W. Baird downgraded it to "Neutral" rating and $82 target in Wednesday, April 26 report. As per Thursday, December 29, the company rating was maintained by Wedbush. On Wednesday, November 4 the stock rating was maintained by Topeka Capital Markets with "Hold".

Twenty-First Century Fox Company Profile Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc is a media and entertainment company. However, the Fox Broadcasting Network would continue to be owned by 21st Century Fox (which may want to change its name when this is all done), as would the sports channels, and the Murdochs' "news" empire with the likes of Fox News and Fox Business News.

The Murdoch family, which controls Fox, prefers a deal with Disney because it would rather be paid in Disney than Comcast stock, and expects a potential deal with Disney to be cleared by US antitrust regulators more easily, one of the sources said.
