Tom Hardy who was originally cast to play Rick Flag, before Joel Kinnaman landed the role in Suicide Squad, confirmed during an interview with Variety on his latest film The Revenant, on how he was bummed out for having to drop out of Suicide Squad.
As a result of the lack of snow, production had to stop in Calgary and resume months later in Argentina. Because of the delays, you had to drop out of “Suicide Squad.”
It punched right into that, yeah. That got derailed for me. Was I bummed? Of course I was. I hate fucking losing work. I kept bemoaning that they were losing me significant money on a daily basis. Actually, it was good for my character.
