Warner Bros. hasn’t been saying much about James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad officially the past couple weeks, but little news bits keep popping up here and there. The latest is that it looks as though the film will be heading to Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville, Georgia to film in Sept.

According to HN Entertainment, The Suicide Squad will be filming in the same set of studios where Gunn previously shot Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. He is also expected to return there for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 when he gets around to shooting that film down the road.

With production reportedly set to begin in September, we expect to be hearing a lot more crew announcements in the near future.

The cast of The Suicide Squad seems to be on in flux at the moment as we await official word on numerous cast members. Currently, Margot Robbie is rumored, but not confirmed, to return as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman looks to be returning as Flagg, and word is that Viola Davis will also reprise her role as Amanda Waller.

As to new characters, David Dastmalchian is confirmed as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior is rumored for a genderswapped Ratcatcher, and we still have no clear indication who Idris Elba is playing. A new rumor, however, points to his character having a daughter, so that narrows down the field a bit. And the final new character rumor has Benicio del Toro possibly up for the role of the film’s villain.

The Suicide Squad is due to hit theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.
