Birds Of Prey: Chris Messina Joins Cast As Victor Zsasz For DC Film


Deadline is exclusively reporting that Chris Messina will star in the upcoming DC film Birds of Prey as sadistic serial killer Victor Zsasz.

 

According to previous reports, the film will focus on Harley Quinn, Huntress and Black Canary teaming up to protect Cassandra Cain when she comes across a diamond belonging to Black Mask, a kingpin in Gotham City’s criminal underworld.

 

The character of Victor Zsasz was introduced in DC Comics back in 1992. Victor was the head of his own international company, whose parents died in a boating accident when he was in his mid-20’s. Still rich from his family’s fortune, he fell into a deep depression after his parents death, losing himself in gambling and ultimately everything to the Penguin. When he attempts to commit suicide, he ends up killing a homeless man, thus he becomes addicted to killing and is known for slitting his victims’ throats and leaving them in lifelike poses, while adding a tally mark to himself each time.

The deadline report also states that Steven Williams, Derek Wilson, Dana Lee, Francois Chau and Matthew Willig will round out the cast for the film, with their roles largely being kept under wraps.

 

The script for the project was written by Christina Hodson, with Cathy Yan attached to direct back in April. Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap will be producing with Sue Kroll under her Kroll & Co Entertainment banner and Bryan Unkeless of Clubhouse Pictures.

 

The latest additions will join a cast that includes Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth WinsteadJurnee Smollett-BellRosie PerezEwan McGregor and Ella Jay Basco.

 

Birds of Prey is scheduled for cinematic release on the 7th February 2020.
