Collider stuck up with Margot Robbie to speak about her upcoming film, Terminal, however they touched on Birds of Prey as smartly, which Robbie is generating. It seems like that film goes to be rated R!
“I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, ‘Harley needs friends,’” Robbie instructed Collider. “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 went on to provide an explanation for feminine directing Birds of Prey was once necessary to her, which lead to Cathy Yan’s hiring.
“And then of course having a female director to tell that story. And giving a female director the chance to do big budget stuff. They always get ‘Here’s the tiny little film’… I was like, ‘I love action. I love action films. I’m a girl. What, are we meant to only like a specific thing’?” So it was once a vastly necessary to discover a feminine director for this, if conceivable. But on the finish of the day — male, feminine — the most efficient director will get the activity and Cathy was once the most efficient director.
In a separate interview with Moviefone, Robbie stated that she was once by no means concerned with creating the opposite Harley Quinn films we’ve heard about, like Gotham City Sirens.
“I know that they were exploring ‘Gotham City Sirens’ with David Ayer, and I know they were exploring a Joker and Harley Quinn movie, and they were exploring doing I don’t know what else. I wasn’t a part of those. I was focusing on this. I kept presenting it to the studio until they felt it was at a point where they were ready to do it. And now we’re all in.”
Obviously any roughly ranking isn’t legit at this level, nevertheless it seems like there’s a robust chance Birds of Prey will probably be rated R. Do you assume that’s the best selection? Let me know within the feedback under!
