Jaume Collet-Serra passes on ‘Suicide Squad 2’ to make a movie with The Rock

The search for a Suicide Squad 2 director continues.

Jaume Collet-Serra was Warner Bros.’ top choice for the Suicide Squad sequel, after script and production delays forced their original choice, Mel Gibson, to move on. Deadline reports that Collet-Serra has decided to pass on Suicide Squad 2 in order to direct Disney’s Jungle Cruise, which stars The Rock.

Warner Bros. announced plans for Suicide Squad 2 at Comic-Con earlier this month, so it seems like it will remain a priority. If you have any suggestions on who should direct, let me hear them in the comments section below.
