Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, best known for directing ‘Bad Boys For Life’, have signed on to direct DC Films’ ‘Batgirl’. The film will focus on the Barbara Gordon version of the character.

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.Kristen Burr
El Arbi and Fallah are coming off the success of ‘Bad Boys For Life’ being the highest grossing American produced film of 2020. They are also acting as co-showrunners on Marvel Studios ‘Ms. Marvel’ which has just finished shooting it’s first season.
