After Tom Hardy dropped out of ‘Suicide Squad’, the project has cast Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg.
Kinnaman’s casting comes about a month after Hardy dropped out of the role, citing scheduling conflicts with his upcoming film ‘The Reverant’ directed Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman).
‘Suicide Squad’ brings together some of DC Comics most iconic villains, giving them a second chance by going to high-risk missions for the U.S. government.
‘Suicide Squad’ comes to theaters August 5th, 2016 and stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis and Joel Kinnaman. The film is directed by David Ayer.
