Gavin O'Connor to Lead Suicide Squad for Sequel
Sep 7, 2017 by: WENN
The Accountant director Gavin O'Connor has landed the top job on the Suicide Squad sequel.
Warner Bros and DC Comics bosses have confirmed O'Connor will take over from David Ayer, who directed the original 2016 film.
The movie was a commercial success at the box office, despite the fact critics hated the film.
Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and the rest of the cast are all expected to reprise their villains-turned-heroes roles for Suicide Squad 2.
O'Connor had been in the running to direct the sequel ever since Ayer made it clear he would not be back.
