One of the most intriguing new DC Films projects that will begin production very soon is Birds of Prey. Part of that is due to its remarkable cast that includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress. With the main cast set, filming on Warner Bros.’s Birds of Prey is set to kick off at the start of next year.
In a new interview with Bionic Buzz, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who will play Huntress, briefly discussed the forthcoming “girl-gang” film. “It’s sort of a spinoff of Suicide Squad,” she said. “It kind of follows Harley Quinn, which is Margot Robbie’s character from those films, and this sort of girl gang that she puts together. I play Huntress, and we’ve got Black Canary, played by Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and Rosie Perez and Ewan McGregor. It’s a really fun, fun cast. We haven’t started shooting yet, but we start shooting in January, and I can’t wait.”
DC Comics’ Birds of Prey are an international crimefighting team featuring heroines such as Oracle (Barbara Gordon), Black Canary (Dinah Laurel Lance) and the Huntress (Helena Bertinelli). The comic book team’s current lineup consists of Black Canary, Huntress, and Lady Blackhawk, along with Hawk and Dove.
The film stars Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez, Ella Jay Basco, and Ewan McGregor. The film is directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodson
Birds of Prey hits theaters on February 7, 2020.
