The Accountant Helmer, Gavin O’Connor, To Write & Direct Suicide Squad 2

The DCEU film Suicide Squad was released last year to very mixed reviews but went on to make $745m worldwide. That has led WB to give a green light to a sequel, however original director David Ayer will not be returning. The studio has been doing an extensive search for a replacement, with Mel Gibson’s name being thrown around at one point. According to WB has settled on Gavin O’Connor who directed Ben Affleck in The Accountant for WB last year and he will prep the film for a rumored fall 2018 production start date. We don’t know which actors will be on the Squad but Will Smith (DeadShot) and Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) are most likely to return (though their busy schedules my affect the production start date)
