Looks like we're one step closer to getting a Suicide Squad movie, Infinite Earths fans! David Ayer, who's World War II film Fury lands in theaters soon, has expressed interest in, and is currently circling the project.
The project had been in development with Justin Marks attached to write for a couple of years, but sources say it was put on the back burner when focus turned to Zack Snyder's [Justice League](movie:401267) flick.
Created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, the Suicide Squad, also known as Task Force X, centres on convicted supervillains who have a chance to redeem themselves through dangerous missions. The Suicide Squad has made appearances on Arrow, and features such popular DC Comics Rogues as Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and Harley Quinn.
The film, which will be produced by Chuck Rovan, has been in development at Warner Bros. since 2011. Earlier in 2014, a director began being saught out.
Warner Bros. has not made a comment on the matter, however chances are good the Suicide Squad will occupy one of the release dates the studio recently announced for a future DC Entertainment film.
Until next time, Infinite Earths fans!
