SUICIDE SQUAD: Tom Hardy Drops Out

According to The Hollywood Reporter Tom Hardy has dropped out of Warner Brothers' Suicide Squad. The article does make mention that there is no immediate reason for his departure although scheduling is one of the speculated reasons. The actor is currently shooting The Revenant, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s frontier drama that also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, and that shoot is now looking to go longer than initially planned.

Based on DC Entertainment’s villains-forced-to-be-heroes characters, the cast boasts a nefarious line-up that includes Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto, along with Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne.

Hardy was to have played Rick Flagg, the leader of the group that consisted of Batman villains Deadshot (Smith), Joker (Leto), and Harley Quinn (Harley Quinn), plus Boomerang (Courtney) and Enchantress (Delevigne).

Hardy is also starring in Mad Max: Fury Road for Warners and that movie opens May 15, smack in the middle of Suicide filming. The movie is due to begin shooting mid-April shoot in Toronto and has an Aug. 5, 2016 release date.
