‘Suicide Squad’ sequel may film this fall: Joel Kinnaman, Jay Hernandez, and Jai Courtney working out together

Suicide Squad‘s sequel is reportedly set to begin production in the United Kingdom this fall.

The Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant, Jane Got a Gun) directed sequel will be heading overseas for a production start sometime in October, according to Omega Underground.

It may or may not be shot in the same Leavesden, England Warner Brothers studio as Justice League, where “Wonder Woman 2 looks to be the next DC project to film there.”

While details haven’t been made official, Will Smith and Margot Robbie will certainly be back with Jared Leto. Joel Kinnaman, Jay Hernandez, and Jai Courtney were recently spotted working out together, prompting expectations of their return to the franchise as Rick Flag, El Diablo, and Captain Boomerang, respectively.

“I think when we do the second one I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a more grounded version of the film,” Kinnaman recently told Yahoo. “The characters are so extreme it could be more effective if we saw less sorcery. I think the characters become more extreme if you see them in conjunction with real people.”

While panned by critics, the first Suicide Squad film earned more than $746 million worldwide during its theatrical run.

Michael De Luca will produce Suicide Squad 2, confirming the Warner Bros. change in strategy.

Ever since DC’s last release, Justice League failed to make its mark at the box office like Avengers and other comic book blockbusters, the studios has moved quickly to steer in a new direction.

Variety stated that “Charles Roven will remain the lead producer on Suicide Squad 2 and sources say Roven was very supportive of De Luca coming on board…”
