The Accountant’s Gavin O’Connor on to write and direct Suicide Squad 2

September 7th, 2017 by Marc Comments

While we were pretty excited about the idea of Mel Gibson helming Suicide Squad 2 (here), we’re pretty damned happy with the new confirmed director…

Gavin O’Connor, the man behind one of our favourite movies of last year, The Accountant, is tipped to write and direct the sequel to the DC franchise starter.

While we learned last week that the sequel wouldn’t be filming for a while yet due to Will Smith being a busy man:

It looks like Warner/DC are moving ahead with the movie, but it looks like the the Fall 2018 date is probably most likely on the money with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto all expected to return.

The first movie, written and directed by David Ayer, suffered greatly because of being rushed, so this should give the studio and O’Connor time to make the sequel more impressive than the first movie – which I still admit is a guilty pleasure.

So we have an interesting choice on board… but what say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
