New Suicide Squad Details; How Ayer Got The Gig And Others Too!

In the midst off all the news we are getting from Entertainment Weekly of Suicide Squad there is some stuff that, courtesy of Batman-News, has other key information about the film itself and more along the lines of the history of the film's infant days if you will.

-Ayer back in 2014 when he was working on his movie Fury, he became motivated to push his career to the next level. “The core of this business is the [comic book] genre and the summer movie tentpole movie,” he told EW. “To really guarantee longevity and viability as a director, it seemed like something I needed on my passport.”

-Ayer landed a meeting with Warner Bros. President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production Greg Silverman, and immediately fell in love with the Suicide Squad characters. Silverman was a big fan of Training Day, a critically acclaimed movie that Ayer wrote about a crooked cop, and felt that he was the perfect guy to write and direct a movie about bad guys.

-Ayer’s pitch for the movie was approved in August, and he had a completed script by September. It was then time to assemble his Suicide Squad.

-Will Smith said that the opportunity to play Deadshot was too good to pass up. “I had never played a character that legitimately didn’t give a f*ck,” Smith said. “It’s very freeing."

-Margot Robbie was hired to play Harley Quinn after just a 20-minute Skype chat with David Ayer. “It was a dream,” Robbie said. “Rarely do you get to play a role that’s so insane and complicated.”

- Then came Jared Leto as The Joker. “As an actor, he’s flinging himself into the abyss on that one”, Ayer said. “And he was scary on set. He was intimidating. He’d show up and it was like ‘Dude, you are f*cking creepy.'”

-Ayer told EW that he stands by his unusual directing style. “It’s all about ‘How do you keep the set fresh, keep it alive? You throw these grenades at the actors, and boom, it’s the money take,” he said.

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity.  U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do.  However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
