Margot Robbie: R-rated, small budget ‘Birds of Prey’ shoots in January

We had heard that Birds of Prey would start shooting either late this year or early next year, and now star/producer Margot Robbie has confirmed the start date for us.

While promoting her new movie Terminal with Flickering Myth, Robbie revealed that shooting on Birds of Prey will begin in January. She also reiterated what she said before about the movie being rated R. She described the movie as being “different” from Suicide Squad and said that Birds of Prey will be made with a “much smaller budget.”

Update: Flickering Myth has shared a video of their interview with Margot Robbie that gives a bit more context to her comments. Robbie says that “hopefully” Birds of Prey starts shooting in January.

We’re still waiting to hear what other characters will be joining Robbie’s Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey. Batgirl has been pretty much confirmed but there were multiple scripts being considered, each with different supporting characters.
