‘Suicide Squad 2’ will be written and directed by The Accountant’s Gavin O’Connor

Has Suicide Squad 2 finally found its director? According to Variety, The Accountant director Gavin O’Connor will write Suicide Squad 2, and The Hollywood Reporter says that he’ll direct the movie as well.

Variety says that due to the casts busy schedules (especially Will Smith’s), production on Suicide Squad 2 will likely begin in the fall of 2018. That will give O’Connor plenty of time to write the script. David Ayer reportedly had just weeks to work on the script for Suicide Squad.

O’Connor recently directed The Accountant for Warner Bros., which just so happened to star Ben Affleck. Do you think he’s a good fit for Suicide Squad 2? Let me know in the comments below!
