The Legend Of Tarzan

Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad sequel hasn’t quite landed on which director can handle its damaged little corner of the DC movie universe, but Mel Gibson is apparently still in the running. So, while the studio figures that out, it might as well put together an actual script for the film that goes beyond “Harley Quinn is there.” To accomplish that, Warner Bros. has hired Adam Cozad, who previously wrote last summer’s largely boring The Legend Of Tarzan—which also featured Harley Quinn herself, Margot Robbie.

This comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which notes that Cozad co-wrote 2014’s Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and worked on an adaptation of the Valiant comic book series Bloodshot, so he has some experience with comic book stuff and disappointing, big-name action movies. Beyond Cozad’s involvement, we don’t know much of anything about Suicide Squad 2, but we do know that original Suicide Squad director is moving on to the Harley Quinn-centric Gotham City Sirens.
