Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie has released some information about her next appearance as Harley Quinn on the big screen.
According to an interview with Flickering Myth, Margot Robbie revealed that her next outing as Quinn would be in the Birds of Prey film and not the Suicide Squad sequel. The actress also confirmed that the girl gang film would be R-rated and would have a smaller budget than previous DC universe films. This would fall in line with the appointment of Walter Hamada as president of DC Films. Considering he was brought in to streamline the operation and reign in budgets, you can expect future DC Films to follow suit.
Robbie also serves as a producer on the film and has confirmed that not only will there be a diverse cast for the film, but that her character would have a new look.
“The costumes haven’t been designed yet but yes she’ll have new looks,” Robbie said. “There will be new Halloween costumes out there, one day.”
Director Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs) will helm the Birds of Prey film which will be begin filming in January. When talking about the genre of superhero films and the characters she is interested in, she said;
“Actually, the ones that excite me most don’t have superpowers at all but they have, you know, pretty great back stories and all could kind of live in the world with Harley and create this cool dynamic. Because I don’t think girl groups… I mean all my girlfriends, we’re a huge girl gang and we’re not all the same person, everyone’s very different. I guess I was really trying to put that on screen — the way we exist in everyday life as a big girl gang. Why can’t we watch that in films more?”
There’s no indication which characters will appear alongside Quinn in the Birds of Prey film.
