Kick-Off The New Year With 'Running Universal'

BIRDS OF PREY Poster Featuring Harley Quinn

Ewan McGregor as Black Mask and the return of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

Chris Messina plays the sadistic killer Victor Zsasz who works with Black Mask in WB/DC’s “Birds of Prey” movie officially titles “Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of one Harley Quinn).”

Oscar nominee Rosie Perez (“Priceless”) will be the one to play lesbian detective on the Gotham City police force Renee Montoya in WB’s new “Birds of Prey” movie. No word yet if this character will turn her alter ego, The Question as it’s depicted in the new 52 comics.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell plays Black Canary in “BIRDS OF PREY” which is set to arrive on February 7th, 2020, co-starring Oscar nominee Margot Robbie once again as Harley Quinn in a Gotham city that isn’t protected by Batman.

Ella Jay Basco plays Cassandra Cain who in the comic books functions as a mute and socially maladjusted assassin and who was also at one time, Batgirl. But the studio wants to remold Cassandra Cain as a young girl for this movie.

In “Birds of Prey,” movie, Huntress is a former mafia princess who like Batman saw her family killed at a young age and she becomes a vigilante. Black Canary a.k.a Dinah Lance is a street fighter known for her shrieking cry. The outlet went on to say that this movie may not feature Barbara Gordon/Batgirl

The big bad villain in this movie will be Black Mask which made its debut in Batman issue #386 in 1985, created by Doug Moench and Tom Mandrake and he’s described as a brutally sadistic kingpin in Gotham City’s criminal underworld who has a fixation with masks. He’s part of Batman’s rogue nemesis gallery and some of his abilities includes mind control. Ewan McGregor plays Black Mask

Former Wall Street Journal reporter turned filmmaker Cathy Yan (“Dead Pigs”) will direct“Birds of Prey” movie starring Harley Quinn reprising her iconic role as Margot Robbie.

This marks Yan as the second female filmmaker in the DCEU after Patty Jenkins who gave us that awesome “Wonder Woman” movie. Yan will also be the first Asian director hired to direct a big budget superhero movie.

Robbie insisted that this film be directed by a woman and it seems that Yan is going to be that lucky woman.
The film will feature DC’s most prominent female characters.

The script is provided by the same person WB just hired to handle their “Batgirl” project, Christina Hodson who penned Paramount Pictures’ “Transformers” spinoff, “Bumblebee.”

Ruben Fleischer To Direct Uncharted

Here we go again... The seemingly poisoned chalice that is the directing assignment on Sony's adaptation of the Uncharted is now likely to end up in the hands of Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer, who has landed at the top of the studio's wishlist.

The Uncharted series, should you be unaware, is a globe-trotting, loot-hunting set of Playstation games, blending Indiana Jones-style adventuring with several parts Tomb Raider and just a dash of National Treasure. Its hero is Nathan Drake (voiced by Nolan North), who undertakes action-packed trips to the likes of El Dorado, Shambala and the Iram of the Pillars, quipping many a quip and shooting many a henchman along the way.

A film based on the game has become a revolving door of filmmakers and actors, with Bumblebee's Travis Knight the most recent director to vacate the seat as the studio aims to have the movie shooting before current star Tom Holland swings off to appear in the next Spider-Man film later this year.
