With filming set to get underway next month, DC’s girl gang movie Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) has made two more additions to its cast in comedian Ali Wong (Black Box) and Robert Catrini (Jack Reacher: Never Go Back).
According to The Wrap, Wong will play an associate of Detective Renee Montoya in the Gotham City law enforcement, while Catrini’s role is being kept under wraps. Their casting follows on from the news earlier this week that Steven Williams (The Chi), Dana Lee (Dr. Ken), Francois Chau (The Expanse, The Tick) and Matthew Willig (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) have also secured supporting roles in the film.
Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs) is directing Birds of Prey from a script by Christina Hodson (Bumblebee) with Margot Robbie reprising her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Fargo) as The Huntress, Jurnee Smolett-Bell (Underground) as Black Canary, Rosie Perez (Fearless) as Renee Montoya, Elle Jay Basco (Grey’s Anatomy) as Cassandra Cain, Ewan McGregor (Christopher Robin) as Black Mask and Chris Messina (Sharp Objects) as Victor Zsasz. It is set for release on February 7th 2020.
