WATCH: Margot Robbie talks R-rated Birds of Prey movie

July 8th, 2018 by Marc Comments

It’s not new news that a Birds of Prey movie is coming, but now Harley Quinn actress, Margot Robbie, promoting her new movie Terminus, has shared some cool new details on the movie.

While several Harley movies are in development, Robbie (full video below) says she’s producing Birds of Prey and therefore has some control over the development which she’s not privy to with the others.

So what does she reveal? Well, she seems to confirm it will be called Birds of Prey. She also reveal it will be part of the DC universe but standalone. It will have a “much smaller budget” and it will be very different from Suicide Squad, it will start to film in January.

Oh, and it will be R-rated.

We here at FTN don’t want any of the DCEU movies to be r-rated… honestly, we love being able to take our kids to these movies and seeing the whole story but, hey, what do we know?

Sadly we still have no idea what other characters are set for the movie but if it’s hoping to film in six months we can probably hope to start hearing casting soon… we will be pacing the floor to hear who will be playing Batgirl (Oracle, maybe?), Poison Ivy, Catwoman and maybe Huntress.

Thoughts on the news?

We know that Robbie put Cathy Yan in the director’s chair to direct the movie and no she’s also saying we can expect a diverse presence in the movie: “Yep, yes exactly, real life isn’t so one specific image. We’ve got to reflect that onscreen.”

On top of that, the actress confirms that Harley will have a “totally different look” in the movie but, as of yet, the actress doesn’t know what it will be as the costumes haven’t even been designed yet: “There will be new Halloween costumes out there one day, perhaps,” Robbie said.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
