John Wick director Chad Stahelski is coming into do reshoots on Birds of Prey. Reshoots are common in movies, but can sometimes indicate a troubled production, but this may be different.
Stahelski is coming in to oversee second unit photography on Birds of Prey, and though he’ll remain uncredited for his work, he’s the perfect person for Warners to turn to as it aims to maximize its investment in this female-driven Suicide Squad spinoff starring Margot Robbie. Stahelski is already creatively invested in the project, as his company 87 Eleven has been working on the movie’s stunts since production started.
These reshoots don’t seem do be an indicator of trouble as much as touch or pizzazz to take the film over the top.
