Los Angeles: "The Lego Batman Movie" director Chris McKay is in the talks to direct a live-action "Nightwing" film, a spin-off of Batman franchise.

This venture will be a part of the DC Universe by Warner Bros, which was launched with "Man of Steel" (2013) and last year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad", reported Variety.

Bill Dubuque, who penned "The Accountant," is writing the script.

Talking about the character, Nightwing first appeared in a 1963 DC comic book as an alias used by Superman in stories set in Kandor, a Kryptonian city that was preserved in a
bottle.

McKay made his feature film directorial debut with "Lego Batman," which has grossed USD 110 domestically in its first 12 days and collected over USD 72 million in the international circuit.
