According to Variety, Warner Bros. is actively developing a live-action feature film based on the DC title with David Ayer (End of Watch, Sabotage, the upcoming Fury) their choice to direct from a script by Justin Marks (The Jungle Book, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li). Dan Lin will produce.
"It is unknown where things stand in the dealmaking process as Warners would not comment, but sources say the studio feels Ayer is a good fit for the dark and edgy film," claims Variety.
Ayer also scripted Training Day, while Marks previously penned SuperMax, an unproduced script that saw Green Arrow sent to prison where he had to team with various supervillains to escape.
The Suicide Squad were the focus of the recent DC animated movie Batman: Assault on Arkham and also appeared on The CW's Arrow.
No word yet on the release date for Suicide Squad, but Warners did recently stake out a number of dates for DC films through 2020.
