Birds of Prey star Margot Robbie explained a connection in the upcoming DC film to her Once Upon A Time In Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino.
Cathy Yan’s upcoming Birds of Prey film is shaping up to be one of the most unique comic book films yet. The film is aiming for an R rating and appears to be an interesting next chapter for Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. Based on set pictures and the short production teaser, Birds of Prey looks like it’s capturing the spirit of Quentin Tarantino’s work. Birds of Prey star Margot Robbie is currently promoting her latest film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, directed by Quentin Tarantino. In a recent interview with MTV, Margot Robbie explained a neat Quentin Tarantino Birds of Prey connection:
“In Pulp Fiction, when Uma and John Travolta are having their five-dollar milkshake, she’s explaining the pilot…and she talks about Fox Force Five. In our movie, there are five prominent women, and like everything, we always throw references to Tarantino movements and pray to inject into the film. So, it felt fitting. Also, I asked Quentin, ‘Would you mind if we use the working title Fox Force Five?’ He thought it was really funny.”

Quentin Tarantino has never directed a superhero film before, but has expressed interest in doing a Luke Cage film in the past. The director is currently considering a Star Trek film, but do you think Quentin Tarantino will ever direct or write a comic book film? Comment below!
