Adam Cozad Set To Pen Screenplay For Suicide Squad 2
Although a relative newcomer to the world of screenwriting, Cozad has also contributed to the screenplay for Kenneth Branagh‘s Tom Clancy adaptation Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. The first Suicide Squad movie, which turned out to be a major box office success for the studio, was written by David Ayer, who also directed the film.
The follow-up film is already set for release sometime in 2019 but remains in need of casting at the moment. While many speculate that at least Margot Robbie – who is already committed to a Harley Quinn spin-off -, Will Smith, and Viola Davis will return for the project, some believe that Jared Leto‘s disappointment with the limited amount of screentime he was given means that we won’t see him as The Joker again.
Per Comingsoon.net, the source of this story:
Despite being a priority for the studio, a director isn’t attached to the project just yet, with many names reportedly in contention for the job, including Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge), Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), and Jonathan Levine (50/50)
Directed by David Ayer, the first Suicide Squad stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Adam Beach, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez, Joel Kinnaman, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Will Smith, most of whom are likely to return for the big screen follow-up.
