Birds of Prey Star Says Film Is Unlike Any Other Superhero Movie

According to one Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) star, the upcoming DC  project will be unlike any superhero film ever made.

Speaking to Total Film Movie Magazine, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who plays Helena Bertinelli/Huntress, said, "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 funny and unlike anything else I've seen before in this genre."

While Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn was introduced in 2016's Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey will not be a direct sequel to David Ayer's film. Rather, the story will stand on its own, although it is likely to at least reference the events of Suicide Squad, especially Harley's relationship with The Joker (Jared Leto).

Directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) stars Margot Robbie, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez, Ewan McGregor, Steven Williams, Derek Wilson, Dana Lee, Francois Chau, Charlene Amoia, Chris Messina and Matthew Willig. The film is scheduled for release on Feb. 7, 2020.
