Ewan McGregor Joins ‘Birds of Prey’, R Rating Confirmed
In further casting news for Birds of Prey, it has been announced that Mary’s Fargo co-star Ewan McGregor has joined the DC film as the villain Black Mask. He will join Margot Robbie who is reprising her role of Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad along with Jurnee Smollett-Bell who is playing Black Canary. Rosie Perez is playing Renee Montoya.
Black Mask is a Gotham City mob boss aka Roman Sionis who leads the False Face Society gang. In the comics, he killed his wealthy parents in order to take control of their corporation, but he was a terrible businessman and lost everything. He blames others for his shortcomings with Bruce Wayne being one of his targets.
In a recent interview this past week, director Cathy Yan confirmed that Birds of Prey will be rated R. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on February 7, 2020.
Nice to see that Nikki Swango and Ray Stussy will be reunited again! 😛
