Warner Bros. and DC Films began working on a superhero movie, focusing on the DC character Black Canary. The film will be a spin-off of the 2020 movie Birds of Prey, starring actor Jurney Smolt as Black Connery and other DC characters such as Harley Quinn, Huntress and Cassandra Cain.
Smolet returns the role for the new film, which was rewritten Lovecraft Country Creator Misha Green, Variety reported.
Smolt and Green are developing the project with DC Films President Walter Hamada and Galen Wiseman.
“Imagine getting out of the canary cage! I’m so excited to finally embark on this adventure with my creative soul sister,” Smolett tweeted Friday.
Sue Kroll produces the Black Crony movie under her Kroll & Co Entertainment banner, as well as Birds of Pray.
