Joel Kinnaman who played Rick Flag in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, was recently interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter, where he was asked on the status of the sequel to Suicide Squad, in which Kinnaman went on to say that they’re still writing the script and the film being planned to be filmed in sometime in 2018.
Kinnaman also goes on to talk on who’s attached to direct the film, as Ayer won’t be returning due to being busy with Gotham City Sirens.
What’s the status of the Suicide Squad sequel and will you be back for it?
As far as I know they’re writing the script and I think the plan is to shoot it sometime in 2018, but that could change. I think I’ll definitely come back for it.
There’s no director attached to it yet. Who do you want to direct it?
Ultimately, I’d love for David Ayer to direct it, but if he doesn’t want to direct it then someone who is great with character and that’s able to ground the story and maybe put these characters in a more normal situation. It would be really interesting to see these crazy characters interact with regular people as well.
