The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard Review 'Action packed with tons of laughs'

Mary Elizabeth Winstead & Jurnee Smollett-Bell Join Birds Of Prey

Well, that didn't take too long. Just few days after we reported that a group of actors were auditioning and screen testing to join Margot Robbie in new Warners/DC pic Birds Of Prey, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jurnee Smollett-Bell have won their respective parts.

Winstead will be playing Huntress, a character that has had different variations in the comics, including a run as the daughter of Batman and Catwoman. While the likes of Sofia Boutella, Cristin Milioti and Margaret Qualley were up for that role, Winstead has emerged victorious. Likewise Smollett-Bell, who scored the role of Black Canary, known for for her shrieking cry, beat out Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

Robbie, of course, will be back as Harley Quinn, with the mismatched team working together to fight a greater threat in Gotham. Still to be decided is the role of detective Rene Montoya, with Justina Machado and Robert Colindrez in the running.

Cathy Yan's directing the eventual film, working from a script by Bumblebee's Christina Hodson. It recently scored a 7 February, 2020 release date. Winstead will be seen in indie comedy drama All About Nina and has a role in Gemini Man. Smollett-Bell has role in horror fantasy TV series Lovecraft Country.

But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln " for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incrim
