Mel Gibson in talks to direct Suicide Squad sequel
Mel Gibson is in talks to direct the sequel to Suicide Squad.
The director, who is currently promoting new Oscar-nominated war drama Hacksaw Ridge, has held talks with Warner Brothers about taking the chair on the sequel, according to Deadline, who also stress that talks are at a very early stage.
Gibson definitely will star alongside Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell in the sequel to hit comedy Daddy's Home, which will enter production this year. John Lithgow has also joined the cast for the sequel.
Before any sequel to Suicide Squad, star Margot Robbie is to reunite with director David Ayer for Gotham City Sirens, a new movie that will unite DC's most iconic female villains. It will see Robbie's Harley Quinn will team up with the likes of Catwoman and Poison Ivy to form a brand new team.
The script for the movie has been written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who has written the script for the Tomb Raider reboot and the forthcoming third instalment of Sherlock Holmes.
As well as this new project Warner Brothers have also revealed that they are developing a spin-off for Deadshot, Will Smith's character in Suicide Squad.
