Warner Bros.'s upcoming Birds of Prey film has been announced to receive a $12.6 million tax credit from the California Film Commission, according to Variety. The film is expected to spend nearly $63m in California on qualified expenditures.

“We are excited to be awarded an incentive from the California Film & TV Tax Credit Program, which will allow us to produce Birds of Prey in the Golden State,” said Warner Bros. Pictures’ senior vice president Kelley Smith-Wait. “The project will have a large footprint and create hundreds of new jobs for women and men in our industry.”

Birds of Prey is one of 19 feature films that have been chosen to receive California tax credits, this year totalling $52.2m. The California Film Commision has given tax credits in the past to Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel.

Directed by Cathy Yan, the Margot Robbie-led Birds of Prey has not been publicly scheduled for theatrical release.
