Sad news Suicide Squad fans. Tom Hardy, who was set to play Colonel Rick Flagg in the upcoming movie, has been forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.

HOWEVER, it is being reported that Jake Gyllenhaal is being courted to take over the role. He has worked with director David Ayers before on End of Watch.

Though is a blow for the film, as this would’ve been Hardy’s second time being a DC character, hopefully the movie will not be affected in the long run.
