Actor Todd Stashwick, who notably guest starred as Richard Sionis/Black Mask in an early episode of FOX’s “Gotham,” has been enlisted to co-write the script for “Suicide Squad 2” alongside Gavin O’Connor and David Bar Katz.
Speaking with DC Movie News, Stashwick explained that he hit it off with O’Connor on a film they worked on together. This will be his first film credit, though he has written for TV series, video games and comics in the past and is a lifelong DC fan. He also indicates DC’s Geoff Johns is helping out in some capacity.
O’Connor will direct “Suicide Squad 2” which was expected to go into production later this year, but has been reportedly pushed back with the Margot Robbie-led “Birds of Prey” taking precedence. It is now targeting filming after that project wraps.
