James Gunn in talks to direct 'Suicide Squad' sequel
James Gunn, who was fired from helming the third instalment of 'Guardians of the Galaxy', is now in negotiations to direct the second 'Suicide Squad' film. It is a follow-up to the Warner Bros. 2016 hit film that featured DC Comics anti-heroes in the lead.
The news, however, confirms the fact that the 'Suicide Squad' film will be his next directorial effort.
The film, however is not being labeled as a sequel, but rather, a relaunch. Sources say that Gunn’s focus is to take the franchise in a new direction with a mostly all-new cast of characters and actors. Sources also say that the project is also very much rooted in Gunn’s vibe, as seen in the 'Guardians' films.
