The Accountant director Gavin O’Connor has been tapped to write and helm Suicide Squad 2 for Warner Bros., taking over for David Ayer.
O’Connor will write a new draft with his scripting partner Anthony Tambakis, and if Warners is pleased, he’ll likely go on to direct the sequel to the hit that is expected to bring back Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto, though the plot remains a mystery.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Hacksaw Ridge helmer Mel Gibson is in talks to enter the DC Films Universe for Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad sequel. Variety reports that the studio is still eyeing other filmmakers including Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies).
