Winstead, Hodson Tease Edgy “Birds of Prey”

Winstead Hodson Tease Edgy Birds Of Prey

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Birds of Prey” hits cinemas early next year and those starring in the Cathy Yan-directed feature promise it will be a breath of fresh air for the genre.

The film sees Margot Robbie reprising her “Suicide Squad” role of Harley Quinn in the film alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Ewan McGregor as the villain Black Mask, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya.

Winstead spoke with Games Radar about it this week and she was asked what to expect:

“You can expect something really fun and a bit wild and totally unique. Every day we were there, we were doing something that just felt really weird and unlike anything else I’ve seen before in this genre. It was incredibly exciting to get to do that. We really got to work. We just played, and we had fun.”

As part of the same interview, the film’s screenwriter Christina Hodson says breaking from the formula of these kinds of films was a priority for her:

“It’s not a traditional team-up. So then it was about finding fun, inventive ways of doing that. Warners were very supportive in terms of letting me go off-leash.”

Ali Wong, Robert Catrini, Steven Williams and Derek Wilson also star in the film which is set to be released in cinemas on February 7th 2020.
