Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor

Suicide Squad			Warner Bros

According to Deadline, he'll bring "a completely new take on the property to Suicide Squad" which, despite Margot Robbie's flawless performance as Harley Quinn, is probably for the best.

This could be somewhat of a coup for Warner Bros., the studio behind Suicide Squad and other films based on DC superheroes. The first film, written and directed by David Ayer, earned $747 million in 2016 but drew withering reviews.

Following Disney's dismissal of Gunn, which happened just as San Diego Comic-Con was getting underway, his Guardians cast members all spoke out in favor of the director, imploring Disney to reconsider. Now he has to make Suicide Squad 2.

James Gunn is a huge get for Warner Bros. and DC Films, who have struggled to find a cohesive vision for their cinematic superhero universe. They landed The Accountant director Gavin O'Connor to write and direct back in September 2017.

Although Gunn is taking on the follow-up, he won't be spending any time on set with original Suicide Squad writer-director Ayer since he's clearly not involved in any capacity. Suicide Squad is beyond rehabilitation-there was so much wrong with it that no sequel could possibly work under any circumstance. The project doesn't have a release date yet, but is expected after Cathy Yan's Birds Of Prey, which is scheduled for 2020.

Manhattan DA drops part of Weinstein case
An attorney for the Harvey Weinstein accuser whose case has been dropped says it does not "invalidate the truth of her claims". Rather, "it only speaks volumes about the Manhattan D.A.'s office and its mishandling of my client's case".

He continued: "Yeah it was a big fun silly movie".

io9's report includes phrases like "reportedly", which suggests that the outlet may have cobbled together enough inside info about the pending Gunn deal to elicit a clear response from Warner Bros. The wrestler-turned-actor took to Twitter and said "Where do I sign up!" when Gunn's new gig was announced.

Dave Bautista is totally down for James Gunn writing the script for Suicide Squad 2.

Gunn's witty, irreverent sensibility turned Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy from little-known minor characters into one Disney's most acclaimed and bankable franchises.
