Not big on Ayer's return as the studio already hatchet jobbed Suicide Squad (for being too dark) and I have a feeling this could suffer a similar fate.

Script writer could go either way although she's also slated to write a Dungeons & Dragons movie apparently. A little concerned that she's basically just come onto the scene and doesn't have much experience beyond writing for multiple movies at the present moment.

Apparently Warner Brothers/DC is gonna try and build up the female roster first before GCS with a Harley Quinn Movie based around the Birds of Prey potentially. It remains to be seen which characters are involved but it's likely Black Canary and Huntress both have key roles.

Cathy Yan has been tabbed to direct with Christina Hodson writing the script while also writing the scrip for the Batgirl movie.

Apparently the only confirmed characters thus far are Harley Quinn and Batgirl although Margot Robbie has pushed for an "R-Rated Gang Girl film" of which Birds of Prey would presumably fit that bill. It's fairly reasonable to predict that Black Canary and Huntress should be involved although there's been a variety of scripts coming through including one which featured The Penguin as the main villain.

Newest information is the film is featuring Harley Quinn, Black Canary, Huntress, Cassandra Cain and Renee Montoya.  So if they are all in the group, three of the five were never in the group in the comics.  Still being touted as an "R-rated Girl Gang" film

Casting rumors are surfacing.  Actresses in the running for each role:

Black Canary
Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Jurnee Smolett-Bell
Janelle Monae

Huntress
Margaret Qualley
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Cristin Milioti

Renee Montoya
Justina Machado
Roberta Colindrez

No word on Cassandra Cain but word is the studio wants a 12-year old Asian actress.

Skimming through the thread doesn't look like this was bumped some time back when the script with The Penguin had been dropped and the villain is set to be Black Mask.

Black Mask is a pretty interchangeable role so it should be easier to cast.

Nic Cage please.

Much like the short-list of names that ended up being accurate for the Black Canary and Huntress casting, two names from the shortlist for Black Mask have surfaced: Ewan McGregor and Sharlto Copley.
