Director David Ayer (“Fury,” “End of Watch”) has reportedly emerged as the top choice to direct a film based on the DC Comics “Suicide Squad” title at Warner Bros. Pictures.
The comic focused on a team of supervillains who were given a second chance by the government for redemption. The catch is that the mission they are sent on will likely end up killing all of them.
The film is aiming to be “dark and edgy” and Ayer is seen as a good fit for the project. No word on which villains will make up this particular team, but it’s not expected to be any of the major ones.
Justin Marks is penning the film, while Dan Lin is producing.
