Adam Cozad writing Suicide Squad 2

Now going full steam ahead on the idea, Warner Bros are trying to put the pieces together for a Suicide Squad (2016) sequel. Though it has held meetings with several directors – including, unexpectedly, Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge) – the only element to fall into place so far is a writer, with news arriving via The Hollywood Reporter that Adam Cozad (The Legend Of Tarzan) is in the middle of making a deal to start work on the script.

Not much is known about the sequel right now, though we can expect the likes of Will Smith's Deadshot and Margot Robbie's mischief making Harley Quinn to return as the ragtag team of villains and anti-heroes pressed into service by Viola Davis' Amanda Waller in order to fight a more dangerous threat.

David Ayer, who handled last year's original film, isn't returning for this one – he is busy developing Harley Quinn spin-off Gotham City Sirens with Robbie. And we will see how much Jared Leto's Joker has to do with the film – perhaps this time he will have less reason to complain that he got cut out?

The main details will have to wait, however, as now Cozad will be working up the concept and hammering out at least the first draft or so. The Legend Of Tarzan (2016) credit and his previous work on Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) aren't the biggest reasons to have confidence, but the Squad's next outing will likely see more writers before it arrives on our screens.
