Next February, fans will get to see a different R-rated take on DC Extended Universe’s female-fronted anti-hero title, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). The upcoming DC film is being directed by Cathy Yan and earlier this week, reshoots finally kicked off as a new set video shows a couple of extras in Harley Quinn’s new overalls costume filming a scene in Los Angeles.
The video released by @WhatsGoodGab also shows what seems like Margot Robbie’s Quinn filming a car chase sequence. You can find the video below.
It’s possible that the new action scenes are currently being filmed by John Wick director Chad Stahelski, who was brought on to oversee second-unit photography. The action film director is taking an uncredited role to design some new action scenes for the movie.
Stahelski’s stunt company, 87 Eleven, famously known for the John Wick franchise has been working on the Birds of Prey project since the start of production.
Birds of Prey will see Robbie reprising her role as Quinn as the Queen of Gotham City rounds up other female “anti” heroes such as Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett) and the Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) to take on a crime lord by the name of Black Mask (Ewan McGregor).
It is currently unknown how long the additional photography will last for. The period of the project’s reshoots will likely be based on the complexity of Stahelski’s planned stunts.
Reshoots are generally part of the filmmaking process but the term became controversial and a PR nightmare for movies, especially DC projects since titles like the Suicide Squad and Justice League were majorly affected after additional photography. But Since then, the studio has also shown that not all reshoots are hazardous to a project since Shazam! also went through the process and its theatrical cut was loved by critics and fans alike.
The Birds of Prey movie is scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 7, 2020.
