Winstead Confirms “Birds of Prey” Date

Winstead Confirms Birds Of Prey Date

Speaking with Bionic Buzz this week, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead has confirmed that filming begins in January on the Cathy Yan-directed “Birds of Prey” film.

Margot Robbie is reprising her “Suicide Squad” role of Harley Quinn in the film which sees Winstead playing Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya who team to take on the villainous Black Mask (Ewan McGregor) who is after a young Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco). Of the shoot, Winstead says:

“It’s sort of a spinoff of Suicide Squad. 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.”

The R-rated feature is penned by Christina Hodson (“Bumblebee”) based on an idea by Robbie. The new project takes priority over a “Suicide Squad” sequel. “Birds of Prey” opens on February 7th 2020.
