Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is an upcoming American superhero film based on the DC Comics team Birds of Prey. Birds of Prey 2020 has been rated and will arrive soon. It is proposed to be the eighth film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU).
The movie is directed by Cathy Yan from a screenplay by Christina Hudson and stars Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez, Chris Messina, Ella Jay Basco, and Ewan McGregor. Birds of Prey follows Harley Quinn as she unites with Black Canary the Huntress and Renee Montoya to spare Cassandra Cain from Gotham City wrongdoing master Black Mask.
The female-led comic book movie continues to follow DC’s recent vision of having more fun lighthearted films like the wildly successful Aquaman. The unlikely band of heroes must join together to protect Cassandra Cain, played by Ella Jay Basco from Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask a crime lord of Gotham City. Chris Messina also stars as famous Batman villain Mr. Zsasz.
Birds of Prey pits Harley, Black Canary, and Huntress against the Gotham crime lord Roman Sionis Black Mask (Ewan McGregor) in what Robbie has described as an rated girl gang film set in the DCEU. Fans got their first glimpse at the cast’s costumes near the beginning of this year thanks to the release of a video confirming that production had begun. More recently Birds of Prey underwent some pickup shoots to add new action scenes from John Wick director Chad Stahelski whose stunt firm, 87 Eleven, has been working on the movie since day one.
Robbie first teased Harley Quinn’s new look in January with a post on her Instagram and a 19-second video that briefly showed the characters in full costume.
