Revealed on DC Daily - which comes from DC's official YouTube channel - Gunn is writing the script for the movie, and it'll take things in a fresh direction, with the show revealing:
"Acclaimed writer-director James Gunn has been attached to write Suicide Squad 2. Gunn is poised to bring a completely fresh take to the franchise after the first film was written and directed by David Ayer."
Crucially, there's no word yet on whether Gunn will actually direct the movie, but you'd have to assume Warner Bros want him to in order to get the full package. It's also unclear exactly what a fresh take means, but it's likely that certain characters from the first movie will still feature, with Gunn instead bringing his own sensibilities and story ideas that should make it completely different to what Ayer (and studio meddling) delivered.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
