Joel Kinnaman, star of the Robocop remake, was previously reported to be in negotiations to appear in Suicide Squad as Rick Flag, replacing Tom Hardy, who had to leave the project due to scheduling reasons. Now in an interview with Allocine, for his new film “Run All Night” (co-starring Liam Neeson) he confirms he’ll be in the film, but he never confirms the role.
All I can say I’m going to be in the movie and it’s going to be amazing.
Obviously its assumed he’s going to be Rick Flag, but I’d careless if he didn’t mention it. It could also be possible it’s for another role, possible but unlikely. Still its great to hear confirmation.
