SUICIDE SQUAD: Gyllenhaal Passes Leader Role

Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad” still looks to be one member short.

Following Tom Hardy’s departure from the role of Rick Flag, sources now tell Variety that Jake Gyllenhaal has passed on an offer to play the leader of the superhero team.

WB had no comment.

The film currently stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne, with David Ayer directing. The pic doesn’t go into production until April, so there is still plenty of time to find another person to fill the role.

The film is set to bow Aug. 5, 2016.

Gyllenhaal has a handful of films debuting in 2015, including “Southpaw,” “Everest” and “Demolition.”
