John Wick director Chad Stahelski overseeing Birds of Prey reshoots

As fans of the DC Extended Universe will no doubt be aware, Margot Robbie is set to reprise her role as Harley Quinn next year in Suicide Squad spin-off Birds of Prey, helmed by Dead Pigs director Cathy Yan. With the bulk of filming now completed and the project currently in post-production ahead of its release in February next year, Yan is now in the process of reshooting and beefing up some of the film's action scenes, and the director has brought in a little outside help.

Chad Stahelski, the man behind Keanu Reeves-led action trilogy John Wick, has been brought in to design and oversee some new action sequences for the film. Fans of Cathy Yan's needn't worry though – it's still very much her movie, and Stahelski's 87 Eleven company have been involved with the film from the beginning, but being something of a specialist when it comes to gripping action sequences, Stahelski has been entrusted with adding a little spice to some of the film's action sequences.

The film is still on course to meet its February 7th release date however and will see Robbie starring alongside a cast which includes Mary Elizabeth Wanstead, Ewan McGregor, Rosie Perez, Chris Messina and Jurnee Smollett-Bell.
