Report about 'Sucide Squad 2' emerges along with news that the film's director David Ayer will reteam with Will Smith for another project called 'Bright'.
On Wednesday night, March 2, news broke that David Ayer would be directing a new movie called "Bright". According to TheWrap, he's going to reunite with Will Smith for the project described as "a cop thriller with fantasy elements."
However, the most interesting part about the article is probably a revelation about a "Suicide Squad" sequel. The first film is still months away from being released, but the site reported that its follow-up would begin its production in 2017. Ayer and Smith are expected to return, so the filmmaker is hoping to get production rolling on "Bright" this year.
"Suicide Squad" is due to hit U.S. theaters on August 5. In addition to Smith, the DC supervillain flick will star Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and more.
Meanwhile, "Bright" is currently being shopped around and may end up at Warner Bros. or Sony. Joel Edgerton is also on board the movie, which is based on a script by Max Landis. It is set in a world where orcs and fairies live among humans, and will center on a unique protagonist in the form of an orc cop.
