Writer Gail Simone has an idea for the Batgirl movie, though she didn't really reveal any specific details.
"Huh. I actually thought of the perfect story for a Batgirl movie," Simone wrote on Twitter.

I actually thought of the perfect story for a Batgirl movie.
Although she didn't provide many other details, Simone did later mention in a tweet that her story would involve Alysia Yeoh, who was introduced in 2011's Batgirl #1.
Bad Feminist author Roxane Gay has also expressed interest in writing the Batgirl film, which prompted a response from Michelle Wells, a vice president at Warner Bros. Entertainment. When someone suggested that Simone and Gay work together on the movie, Simone responded, "I'm in."
Simone is known for her work on Batgirl, Birds of Prey and Wonder Woman. There was previously some indication that the yet-to-be-titled Batgirl movie would be based on Simone's 2011 run on the character, which saw Barbara Gordon regain the use of her legs after a terrible accident.
Another report indicated that Joss Whedon -- who recently left the project -- was aiming to adapt “The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!,” which featured Barbara Gordon's debut in 1967's Detective Comics #359. Written by Gardner Fox and drawn by Carmine Infantino, the tale follows the daughter of Police Commissioner James Gordon who, dressed as a female version of Batman for a masquerade ball, intervenes in the attempted kidnapping of Bruce Wayne by Killer Moth. Although Batman insists the gives up crime-fighting because of her gender, Barbara ignores the Caped Crusader and adopts the identity of Batgirl.
Little is known about Warner Bros.' Batgirl movie at this time. However, the film is rumored to be among DC's next wave of films.
