‘Venom/A Star Is Born’ Cinematographer Matthew Libatique Confirms He’ll Work On ‘Birds of Prey’ Next

Oct 25, 2018

Cinematographer Matthew Libatique (Iron Man, Black Swan, Straight Outta Compton) is having one hell of a year with both Venom and A Star Is Born opening this month, and both making solid box office returns.

While speaking with GMANetwork, Matthew has now confirmed his next project will be Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey.

I’m in preparation on a film currently called “Birds of Prey.” It’s probably going to have a different title. It’s with Warner Brothers, and the director is Cathy Yen. Who directed a film called “Dead Pigs” which is a Chinese film.  I’m excited.  It’s, in the superheroes genre but this time it’s in the DC universe, not the Marvel universe. Margot Robbie is set to star and I’m excited for that. And then it has a little bit of origin story in it, so it makes it intriguing and it’s very early though, so early discussions. 


Filming as we’ve previously reported will begin on mid-January in Los Angeles.

Birds of Prey is set for release on February 7th, 2020.
