Mel Gibson In Talks to Direct 'Suicide Squad' Sequel

Mel Gibson is in very early talks to take on the role of director for an upcoming Suicide Squad sequel, according to THR.

The 61-year-old actor and director would be taking over for David Ayers, who directed the first flick.

Sources say that Mel is currently familiarizing himself with the film’s material but Warner Brothers is pursuing the relationship.

The original Suicide Squad film was a hit, starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto, and grossed $745 million worldwide.

Mel mostly recently directed the Oscar-nominated war movie Hacksaw Ridge, which has made $164 million worldwide.

    Many people will never forgive Gibson, but all I can say is he is a GREAT talent. He usually brings some kind of strong emotion to his films and that draws you into the story. He makes you feel something for the characters and story, and I think he will find a way to do that with this film too.
