AceShowbiz - Turns out the title of Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn spin-off isn't just "Birds of Prey". The actress revealed the movie's full and long title on Tuesday, November 20 by sharing a picture of the movie's script with her scribble on it.
On the cover page, the Australian actress wrote "And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn" in brackets under the widely known title "Birds of Prey". She also left a kiss mark on the page, while only captioning the image with a laughing emoji.
While it's possible that Robbie was just joking around with the full title like, the long title is apparently real. Warner Bros. Pictures has appeared to confirm it by reposting Robbie's photo on its official Twitter page and writing in the caption, "@MargotRobbie #BirdsofPrey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of one Harley Quinn) hits theaters 2.7.20."
The movie's long title hints at the plotline. It appears that the film will pick up after Harley frees herself from a highly destructive relationship with Joker and ends their romance for good. Jared Leto, however, isn't expected to reprise his "Suicide Squad" role as Batman's nemesis in "Birds of Prey".
Robbie, who is portraying Harley Quinn, is joined in the cast by Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary a.k.a. Dinah Lance, and newcomer Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain. "The View" host Rosie Perez is tapped to portray Gotham City police detective Renee Montoya, while Ewan McGregor is starring as villain Black Mask.
The film "follows the adventures of a revolving group of female heroes and villains and is based on the DC Comics characters and concepts created by Jordan B. Gorfinkel and Chuck Dixon." In the upcoming movie, the female superheroes team up to protect Cain when she comes across a diamond belonging to Black Mask, a kingpin in Gotham City's criminal underworld.
Cathy Yan ("Dead Pigs") is on board to direct the film, making her the first ever female Asian director to take charge of a superhero film. Christina Hodson ("Bumblebee") is writing the script, with Robbie, Sue Kroll and Bryan Unkeless producing. The movie is slated for a July 2, 2020 release in the U.S.
