WB wants Daivd Ayer To Direct The Suicide Squad

So far movie adaptations featuring huge ensembles have focused on the heroes, but Warner Bros. might be the first one out of the gate to feature a team of anti-heroes. The studio is currently eyeing David Ayer to direct an adaptation of Suicide Squad, a team of incarcerated DC villains who are given a chance at redeeming themselves or for shorter sentences in exchange for suicidal missions, hence the name.

According to Variety, Ayer is WB’s top choice to direct the film, and the filmmaker has also expressed interest in helming the adaptation. According to the trade, “the studio feels Ayer is a good fit for the dark and edgy film.” Hit the jump for more.

Dan Lin will produce based on a script written by Justin Marks.

The Suicide Squad roster normally doesn’t include any heavy hitters like Lex Luthor or the Joker. And we don’t know if the film will feature any characters used in the current DC Cinematic Universe, which is in its infancy. But there is a chance that a crossover could happen or that these members could be established characters much like how Batman will already be a fixture in the DCU.

Ayers is best known for his work on End of Watch and Training Day. His upcoming World War II tank drama, Fury, starring Brad Pitt, opens in theaters in this October.
