James Gunn in Talks to Write SUICIDE SQUAD 2
James Gunn, who directed "Guardians of the Galaxy," is in talks to write the DC and Warner Bros "Suicide Squad" sequel, according to Variety.
A studio representative said that Gunn hasn't been signed to direct.
After directing the first two "Guardians of the Galaxy" films, Gunn was fired from the franchise due to the re-emergence of old, offensive tweets.
Sony announced Monday that it moved Gunn's horror project "BrightBurn" back from November 30th to May 24, 2019. Gunn produced the project with The H Collective. "BrightBurn" stars Elizabeth Banks, Jackson Dunn, David Denman, Meredith Hagner, and Matt Jones.
The first "Suicide Squad" starred Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, and Cara Delevingne. It was written and directed by David Ayer in a story of imprisoned supervillains executing BLACK OPS missions to save the world in exchange for reduced sentences.
