Producer Sue Kroll has been with Birds of Prey from the very beginning. Since it was just an idea in star Margot Robbie‘s head while she was originating her breakout character Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Since director Cathy Yan came to Kroll and fellow producer Bryan Unkeless with a vision of a wild, bombastic, and unabashedly fun girl gang movie.
“There was something very raw about it, very visceral,” Kroll said of the sizzle reel that Yan showed to her and Unkeless. That visceral tone was maintained through the final product, which debuted in theaters this weekend to rave reviews, though not without its fair share of scrutiny and behind-the-scenes reworking along the way. Kroll spoke to /Film about the reshoots that Birds of Prey underwent, and how the film dealt with the burden of being a film made by women, starring women in the time of Me Too.
