As far as I’m concerned, Chad Stahelski is directing the best action sequences right now in American cinema. Like, fuck yeah. So, bringing the dude in to punch-up Birds of Prey? Hachi Machi.


The DC Extended Universe’s Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is currently in the middle of additional filming, with a noted director overseeing added action sequences into the film: Chad Stahelski.

Stahelski has previously directed all three installments of the acclaimed John Wick trilogy and is reportedly overseeing a second filming unit, designing new action sequences for the movie in an uncredited capacity. It is currently unknown how long the new round of filming will take place.

Prior to helming all three John Wick films, including this year’s John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Stahelski had been a stunt actor and second unit director on several high profile Hollywood films including Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Birds of Prey began principal photography this past January and is scheduled to be released this February.
