"Birds of Prey" : Margot Robbie In "ES"

Sneak Peek "Birds of Prey" actress Margot Robbie for "ES" Magazine, wearing ChanelMolly Goddard and a whole lot more, photographed by Max Papendieck:

Robbie is producing and starring in "Birds of Prey", opening February 2020, reprising her "Suicide Squad" role as DC Comics' 'Harley Quinn'...

...for director Cathy Yan ("Dead Pigs") from a screenplay by Christina Hodson ("Batgirl"):

The other "Birds of Prey" include DC Comics' 'Black Canary', 'Huntress', 'Cassandra Cain' and 'Renee Montoya', with 'David Cain' as the villain.

"I pitched the idea of an 'R-rated' girl gang film including 'Harley', because I was like, 'Harley needs friends'...

"...Harley loves interacting with people, so don't ever make her do a standalone film," said Robbie.

"She’s got to be with other people, it should be a girl gang. I wasn't seeing enough girl gangs on screen, especially in the action space...

"And then of course having a female director to tell that story. And giving a female director the chance to do big budget stuff. 

"They always get ‘Here’s the tiny little film’… I was like, ‘I love action. 

"I love action films. I’m a girl. What, are we meant to only like a specific thing’?...

"So it was a hugely important to find a female director for this, if possible. 

"But at the end of the day — male, female — the best director gets the job and Cathy was the best director."

Robbie's LuckyChap produces with Sue Kroll, Kroll & Co Entertainment and Bryan Unkeless of Clubhouse Pictures.

The original "Birds of Prey", was a partnership between 'Black Canary' and 'Barbara Gordon', aka 'Oracle'. 

'Harley Quinn' (Mia Sara) also appeared in the TV series "Birds of Prey".
