Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey has landed an impressive stunt team for the film ahead of their shoot in January. We have learned that Birds of Prey has added stunt coordinator Jonathan Eusebio and fight coordinator Jon Valera.
The pair of badasses are key members of 87Eleven Action Design, the stunt company created by directors Chad Stahleski and David Leitch. You might have seen them training Keanu Reeves for the John Wick movies in behind the scenes videos.
They have some serious action credits to their name along with more than a few comic book adaptations as well. Jonathan’s credits include Black Panther, John Wick 3, Deadpool 2, The Fate of The Furious, John Wick: Chapter 2, John Wick, The Avengers, and The Wolverine. Valera’s credits are Aquaman, Atomic Blonde, John Wick 3, Creed II, Thor: Ragnarok, and John Wick.
This would certainly cement talk from Cathy Yan and Margot Robbie they’re going forward with an R-rating for the movie.
Filming will begin mid-January in Los Angeles, California.
Birds of Prey will see Harley Quinn team up with DC Comics heroes Huntress and Black Canary against Batman antagonist Black Mask.
The cast so far consists of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Helena Bertinelli aka Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Dinah Lance aka Black Canary, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Ewan McGregor as Roman Sionis aka Black Mask, and Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain.
Warner Bros. has set the release date for Birds of Prey on February 7th, 2020.
