Warner Bros. is looking at quite the cast to take on the lead roles in their upcoming DC comic book movie Suicide Squad.
Not long after WB unveiled their schedule of their DC Comics movie catalogue, revealing that Suicide Squad would be released on August 5, 2016, THR broke the news that the studio was eyeing Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy for the film.
That’s a hell of a cast, to be sure, so we’re taking this with a big-ass grain of salt; especially since WB are yet to comment.
Gosling has been dodging franchises for years, apparently only denying the lead role in 2011’s Green Lantern because it meant signing up for more than one film. Well, he dodged a bullet with that one.
David Ayer, director of Harsh Times, Street Kings, End of Watch, and the upcoming war drama Fury, is to helm Suicide Squad.
We’ll keep you informed on these casting rumours.
