With Birds of Prey slowly reaching its production start date in the next few weeks, the length of the shooting period has remained a mystery. Although the film will not be released until February 2020, it requires ample time to assemble the shot footage into a finished product and complete visual effects shots. Thanks to HN Entertainment, it is now said that the film is expected to complete principal photography by April 13, 2019.
Given its mid-January start date and potential mid-April end date, this means that shooting will take around three months. As such, its schedule is comparable to the majority of blockbusters since its post-production phase will take considerably longer than principal photography. With a general plot synopsis, cast, and crew having been set in stone, it is now up to everyone involved to put their best efforts into this project for the next few months.
