Jai Courtney Eyed to Play Deadshot in “Suicide Squad”

You may know Jai Courtney from Divergent, Terminator: Genisys, or A Good Day to Die Hard. Now, Courtney is being eyed for the role of Deadshot in Suicide Squad. If Courtney does sign on to the project, he will be joining Margot Robbie who is playing Harley Quinn, as well as Tom Hardy, Jared Leto and Will Smith who are all in negotiations.

Suicide Squad will be written and helmed by David Ayer and produced by Charles Roven. The current plan is to begin filming by spring and to release the film in the summer of 2016.

Suicide Squad is centered around a group of nasty super villains and the luck is running high. They are given a chance to redeem the government and the mission will more than likely kill them all. Movie title achieved. As for Deadshot, he is a key villain in the comics and is also known as Floyd Lawton. He is best friends with Catwoman. Who knew?

Warner Bros. has had no mention of the story so, as of right now, these are just wisps of chatter floating around Hollywood. Honestly, we like it. Do you?
