The DCEU fandom is anticipating a casting news announcement for Warner Bros. Birds Of Prey movie any day now. And a new report also suggests that the project is progressing as planned and is on schedule for the start of its production.
The latest report coming from Production Weekly’s recent listing has revealed that Birds Of Prey will begin filming on January 14 in Los Angeles. But that’s not all. The project has also finally received its working title and its certainly a fitting one.
The project’s working title has been revealed to be ‘Fox Force Five’. For those unaware, the working title is a reference to Pulp Fiction. In the movie, It is the name of a pilot episode of a television show starring Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) that failed to go past the pilot.
Fox Force Five centered over the exploits of an all-female team of secret agents and each of them possessed a specialty that made them unique. Wallace’s specialty involved knives.
If the rumors turn out to be true, we’ll also be getting a five-member all-female team up in Birds Of Prey namely Harley Quinn, Black Canary, Cassandra Cain, Huntress and Renee Montoya. There was also a report that suggested Warner Bros. was trying to rope in Lady Gaga for the movie but it was later said that she turned down the role.
From the looks of it, fans may be in for some exciting casting announcements possibly by the end of this month.
There’s not much information out yet on the project. But it was earlier hinted by Margot Robbie that she “pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film” so it seems like it might not be a PG-13 movie. Furthermore, the project will be made with a relatively “much smaller budget”.
Birds Of Prey will be directed by Cathy Yan from a script written by Christina Hodson. The movie is yet to get an official release date.
