Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor

James Gunn to Write & Possibly Direct New Suicide Squad Movie James Gunn to write Suicide Squad 2, possibly direct

io9 also reports Gunn's sequel would not necessarily be a sequel to Ayer's movie, but a completely new direction using the same or similar characters.

The directing gig then passed on to Gavin O'Connor (The Accountant, Warrior), but according to IMDb, he has no less than SIX projects that he is now signed on to direct, and with Gunn coming on board as writer, it would make sense for him to take on directing duties, too. Seeing how Suicide Squad is abhorred while the Academy Award-nominated/losing Guardians films are celebrated, this move is overall unusual and a bit confusing, but seeing how DC and WB also got the freaking Avengers director in an attempt to "fix" Justice League, it makes sense from the studio's perspective.

Noble words from Ayers, but perhaps reflecting that to, pretty much everyone, this is a good -though bold - decision from Warner Bros and one that all of sudden makes me more excited for a Suicide Squad sequel than I ever thought I would be. Gunn has an opportunity to revisit the same elements his Guardians were known for, with the added twist of a dark sense of humor that is exactly what the Suicide Squad needs; after all, the Guardians have hearts of gold, but the Squad should be heartless.

'What are we, some kinda suicide squad reboot?' When Warner Bros. greenlit Birds of Prey, the Cathy Yan-directed feature centered around Harley Quinn's girl gang, before giving Suicide Squad 2 the go-ahead, O'Connor reportedly "grew frustrated and fell off the project" to work on The Has-Been instead.

Woman who spent £16m in Harrods revealed
One property, worth around £11.5 million, is in the rich London neighborhood of Knightsbridge, where Harrods is located. However, a judge agreed to the anonymity order pending an appeal against the ruling.

As Gunn wrote the screenplays for both the first and second installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy films it'll be interesting to see what he brings to Marvel's rivals as he is considered to be a major steal from the company. What Gunn did with Guardians had a ripple effect on the whole of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, influencing how filmmakers approached their projects in the years following Vol. 1's release. "Gunn has closed a deal to pen the script".

Dave Bautista, who plays Drax in the movies, tweeted: "Where do I sign up!" alongside a link to the news that James Gunn was writing the new Suicide Squad.

The new Suicide Squad movie is going to be produced by Peter Safran who is famously known for producing films from the highly-successful Conjuringfilm franchise, including the 2018 film The Nun.
