Revealed earlier this evening by the movie’s director David Ayer, the image shows Will Smith, Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, and more in the middle of a read-through in preparation for next week, when the project is scheduled to start filming. Noticeably absent, though, is Jared Leto, who is currently on tour with 30 Seconds To Mars. The picture also suggests that Neighbors’ Barinholtz and Joe Dirt’s Adam Beach have been added to the cast.
In the film, Smith is set to play Deadshot, Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Plastique, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. Suicide Squad is based on the DC comic book of the same name, and is about a team of supervillains who are recruited by the government to complete dangerous assignments in exchange for clemency.
Personally, I still think there must be some sort of Jai Courtney tax credit for studios.
