John Wick Director Chad Stahelski Is Designing New Action Scenes For DC's Birds Of Prey
His stunt company was already working on the film.
The upcoming DC film Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) has brought in Chad Stahelski, the director of all three John Wick movies, to help out with second unit photography, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie, directed by Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs) is currently undergoing additional photography to add in more action scenes, which Stahelski will be designing. His stunt company, 87 Eleven, has been involved in the making of the movie since the beginning, so he's a natural choice for the second unit role. It's not yet clear what these additional shoots will entail. The film, which also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Ewan McGregor as Black Mask, and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, is about a team of women who come together to save a young girl caught in a bad situation.
We got our first look at Birds of Prey back in January, but haven't seen much since. It has a February 7, 2020 release date, and will be the first of two DC movies released next year. It'll be followed by Wonder Woman 1984.
Stahelski is not currently officially attached to direct John Wick Chapter 4, but it's anticipated that he will helm it.
