BREAKING: James Gunn In Talks to Write and Direct Next SUICIDE SQUAD Movie

io9:

Warner Bros. has just confirmed to io9 that James Gunn is in discussions to write, with an eye to direct, the next installment of the Suicide Squad franchise. He’ll have a completely new take on the property.

Shots fired.

UPDATE: Updated headline to reflect the tentative nature of the deal.

Remember when DC/WB was going to have Joss Whedon do Batgirl? Not saying there’s nothing to this, but…let’s see how this plays out.

A lot of Suicide Squad seemed like it was trying to ape the Guardians vibe, with the needle drops and ersatz family. Gunn could make this work.

UPDATE 2: Sounds like this is a full on reboot.
