Get ready Bird Of Prey fans, because the girl gang movie just landed the role of Batgirl/Orphan! Ella Jay Basco got cast for the film that’ll be hitting the theaters next year. Ella Jay Basco is known for her roles in TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Superior Donuts, and Veep.
When we look at the comic book storyline of Cassandra Cain, she was the daughter of Lady Shiva and David Cain and trained as a deadly assassin. After that part of her life, she takes the challenge of taking Batgirl’s mantle. After that, she passed it to Stephanie Brown so that she can become Black Cat in the DC universe. After that, her name’s changed Orphan.
Margot Robbie will be reprising her role as Harley Quinn, the crazy (ex?)girlfriend of the Joker who helped her escape out of Belle Reve. Recently Jurnee Smollett-Bell was cast as Black Canary and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress. We don’t know much about the movie yet, but we do know that the big bad terrorizing the streets of Gotham will be Black Mask.
The film also got a new working title at the end of September which is Fox Force Five. If this will be the final movie name, is still a debate.

Read the possible synopsis for the movie:
