Mel Gibson among the directors courted for Suicide Squad sequel
Also Jonathan Levine and Ruben Fleischer
While Suicide Squad didn't set critics on fire, it looks like a sequel is coming because we can't have nice things. Warner Bros. is hoping to keep the DCEU alive with its misfit band of killers and criminals, and they're trying to find the right director. One of the main names on WB's list for Suicide Squad 2 is Mel Gibson.
Yeah, that Mel Gibson. To direct bad guys, hire a bad guy, I guess.
Warner Bros. is also looking at Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) to potentially helm the film. As Variety notes, the list could grow, and no deals are currently in the works. There is no word on if Gibson or any of the other directors listed is interested in the project.
David Ayer, who who wrote and directed the first Suicide Squad as well as much better movies, is turning his attention to the standalone Harley Quinn movie starring Margot Robbie.
