Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor

Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor

The first film was critiqued heavily by critics and audience members alike, scoring a measly 28% on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is Gunn's first assignment since Disney removed him from the money-spinning Guardians franchise. With the likes of Michael Rooker and Nathan Fillion appearing in several of his films, it's fair to say that he's probably both a good director to work for and a loyal one who gives opportunities to those who considers friends.

The first Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a unsafe black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences.

With Gunn on board, the filmmaker is expected to deliver a completely new take on DC's ragtag group of ne'er do wells, as they continue to fight for their lives while working for Amanda Waller, a ruthless strategist who uses the comic company's "worst of the worst" to carry out unsafe missions that other outfits are otherwise too green to handle on their own. Still, I feel tempted to buy tickets already and they haven't even started working on the film.

Get more film and TV news below. Gunn was set to complete his trilogy, until right-wing detractors made some of the director's years-old jokes about unsavory subjects the focus of a targeted campaign against him.

Who stars in Suicide Squad 2? "Gunn has closed a deal to pen the script".

Of course, what any of this means precisely is unclear and will likely remain that way until DC and Warner Bros. decide to make an official and more detailed announcement about the matter.

We should reiterate that, at the moment, Gunn has only been hired to write the next Suicide Squad. With Gunn at the helm of a sequel, the studio finally has the chance to release the movie it wanted in the first place. Then again, Gunn's fresh perspective on the DC IP might simply result in some quirky humor reminiscent of the wit found in the Guardians of the Galaxy duology. And we bet there will be a catchy tune or two in there somewhere, as well.
