Birds of Prey is heading in to its crucial second weekend at the worldwide box office. Around the globe fans will be keenly watching to see how the film performs after what has been labelled a disappointing $81m global launch last week.
In a new interview with /Film producer Sue Kroll has been discussing the reshoots which saw the Warner Bros. film rework some of its action scenes and also the potential for spinoff films.
“Well look, we have to get through the release,” said Kroll. “This needs to be successful. But this is a big expansive world. So of course, anything’s possible, Yeah, I think people would love to see more stories. So we’ll see, but of course, it would be a very natural thing. But we haven’t talked about it at all, right now we’re focused on getting this movie open. One step at a time.”
“So the reshoots, I think it got overstated in the press just a little bit,” added Kroll. “We did, after we saw the movie and the studio saw the movie, the action was working really beautifully and we all decided that we wanted more of that. And so, we had Chad brought on — we’ve been working with at 87Eleven, Jonathan Eusebio who designed the original stunts for the film’s funhouse [sequence] and so on. So it was a very natural extension, it was all the same people. The same crew, same stunt people, same choreographers, everything. But with additional work that was being done for the reshoots.”
What did you think of the action in Birds of Prey? Was it a good move to bring in Chad to work on the film?
