Jurnee Smollett-Bell, who plays Black Canary:
Yeah, Harley’s crazy, she’s a psycho. She’s quirky. She’s all these annoying things. But Margot finds a way to ground her in a truth that I think we can relate to.
Nothing But Praise from Director Cathy Han:
This movie owes so much to Margot. It really was her idea. She pitched it. She pitched the idea of a girl gang movie with Harley Quinn and that was because she, I think, understood the character, in that Harley is not someone that wants to ever be alone and then she developed the script with Christina (Hodson). I think she recruited Christina in the process. So this has been a very personal journey for her I think.
Huntress – Mary Elizabeth Winstead:
She really had her hand in everything on this movie, but at the same time she managed to keep such a clear head all the time, which I was so impressed by because you would think with all the different roles she’s playing and all the different hats she’s wearing that it would be stressful or that she’d be sort of in over her or something at some moment and she never was. She was cool as a cucumber.
The most exciting thing as an actor is to have a number of choices with your character. You can sort of do anything when you’re Harley Quinn. You can sort of react one way or react 20 other different ways and it always makes sense for the character. So that’s a liberating and creatively stimulating place to be working anyway. But with the relationship with Mister J, there’s still a lot there and we kind of wanted to see, okay, what’s Harley like when she doesn’t have the comfort of knowing that Mister J will take care of her or take care of things?
Only a few short weeks remain until we see the fruits of Margot Robbie’s efforts along with her fellow Birds of Prey on the big screen.
Here’s the Birds of Prey synopsis:
You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.
Birds of Prey opens February 7, 2020.
