James Gunn to write & possibly direct new Suicide Squad movie

io9 reports that James Gunn, who was previously fired from Marvel and Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, is in talks to pen the script for DC’s Suicide Squad 2 and may also direct the untitled sequel. The new Suicide Squad movie will reportedly be a different take on the characters and not a direct follow-up.

Back in July, Walt Disney Studios dismissed Gunn from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 due to Gunn’s past controversial tweets. Despite this, the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s main cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn and Bautista, who all still supported him and asked for Disney to reinstate Gunn as the film’s director.

Earlier this year, director James Gunn revealed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 would be released in 2020. Filming was scheduled to start this Fall in Atlanta, but it is unknown if the film will keep to this schedule. The third Guardians film was meant to be the final outing for the original team lineup, and set up future films in the cosmic arena of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Suicide Squad was released in 2016 and earned about $750 million worldwide. Made for $175 million before marketing expenses, Suicide Squad stars Will Smith (AliThe Pursuit of Happyness), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall StreetFocus), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix’s “House of Cards”), Viola Davis (The HelpDoubt), Jai Courtney (Insurgent), Jay Hernandez (Takers), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Thor: The Dark World), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors), Scott Eastwood (Fury), Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns), Adam Beach (Cowboys & Aliens), and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut. The comic book adaptation was written and directed by David Ayer for Warner Bros. Pictures.
