“Suicide Squad” director David Ayer and that film’s star Will Smith are looking to reunite for a film based on Max Landis’ spec script “Bright” which will likely be set up at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Ayer is attached to direct and Smith on board to star with Joel Edgerton also in talks to co-star. The project is said to be tonally in the vein of Ayer’s “End of Watch” but done in a world where Orcs and fairies live among humans.
Landis recently tweeted about Ayer’s recent rewrite of the spec: “Ayer translating a whole script of mine into Ayer-sian is a huge, bizarre honor. Like reading the same script from an alternate dimension.”
Filming aims to begin later this year for a 2017 release.
