[Film] Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of one Harley Quinn)

Post by Isgrimnur » Mon Jan 07, 2019 3:06 pm

Polygon
On Tuesday, Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie posted a picture of the final script for the movie on her Instagram, revealing the expected “Birds of Prey.” But beneath the straightforward title treatment was a lengthy handwritten parenthetical — and a lipstick kiss.

It could easily be read as a bit of a goof — but The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that this is the full official title. It’s long, but it’s perfectly in character for Harley Quinn.
...
Alongside the cheerfully disturbed eponymous antiheroine, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) will star Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Fargo) as the vigilante the Huntress; Jurnee Smollett-Bell (The Great Debaters) as the superheroine Black Canary; and Rosie Perez (Pineapple Express) as Gotham City police detective Renee Montoya.

It was recently announced that Ewan McGregor would take on the antagonist role as the mafia kingpin Black Mask. Newcomer Ella Jay Basco will play Cassandra Cain, the vigilante sometimes known as Batgirl or Orphan. The film is written by Christina Hodson, as seen above (Bumblebee, the upcoming Batgirl), and directed by Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs).

Rosie Perez (Pineapple Express)
Pineapple Express? That's what she gets as her reference film?

That gave me pause as well. I guess they just wanted to find something more recent? White Men Can't Jump is the first thing that comes to mind for me. But that was a while ago.

Fearless maybe?



On topic, I'm not too deep into Batman or the DC universe (or any comicverse really) but the parenthetical in the title is very cool and I'd see it on that alone.

I would've thought they'd go with White Men Can't Jump.

1992 and 1993 films aren't exactly recent in anyone's mind. And even Pineapple Express is 10+ years old now.

Well, it helped me do the right thing, obviously.

It’s not a perfect metaphor.
