Cathy Yan's live-action Birds of Prey movie actually has a much longer title than we originally thought. Posting a photo of the front page of her script on Instagram, star Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) revealed that movie will be called Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Sort of reminds us of Mariah Carey's 2005 album, The Emancipation of Mimi.

As you can see in the image below, the second part is scribbled in and finished off with a smooch of pink lipstick. However, The Hollywood Reporter did confirm that this is indeed the film's full and legitimate title and not just some fourth wall-breaking skullduggery on the part of Robbie. 

A diamond was also sketched near the lefthand corner, as the movie's plot revolves around young Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) coming into a possession of a valuable jewel belonging to one of Gotham's most feared crime lords, Black Mask (Ewan McGregor). Once Cassandra's life is in danger, it's up to Harley and a number of other vigilantes — mainly Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) — to protect the girl.

Per THR, Quinn "emancipated" herself from her longtime boyfriend, the Joker, in Issue #25 of her run from Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. She voiced her hatred for what the Joker brought out in her personality, confirming that their relationship was abusive and that she didn't need him anymore. 

Christian Hodson (Bumblebee) penned the screenplay for Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) — whoo, that's a mouthful! — which is set to hit theaters on Feb. 7, 2020. The film co-stars Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya.
