Margot Robbie Announces Name, Rating and Shoot Start Date for Harley Quinn Spinoff
She’ll be here sooner than you think.
The 28-year-old Australian actress just revealed to movie blog Flickering Myth that her Harley Quinn standalone movie, titled Birds of Prey, will begin filming in January 2019.
More good news: Robbie confirmed the movie will receive an R-rating. (Bare in mind that Suicide Squad had a mere PG-13 rating.)
Robbie is also producing the film, which lends her greater creative license. She even had a hand pitching the project, as she recently revealed to Collider.
“I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, ‘Harley needs friends.’ Harley loves interacting with people, so don’t ever make her do a standalone film. She’s got to be with other people, it should be a girl gang. I wasn’t seeing enough girl gangs on screen, especially in the action space. So that was always a big part of it.”
Robbie will reprise her Suicide Squad role four more times, Birds of Prey included, so get ready for more Harley Quinn.
