REPORT: Joel Kinnaman Leading Choice for Rick Flag in “Suicide Squad”

After Tom Hardy departed “Suicide Squad” last month, Warner Bros has sought other actors to fill the role of Rick Flag and reports Friday from sources including The Hollywood Reporter pegs Joel Kinnaman as the studio’s front runner. This follows a rumor earlier in the day published by Latino Review.

Kinnaman played the titular character in last year’s “Robocop” reboot. If he joins the cast, he will star alongside Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress.

Jake Gyllenhaal was also considered for the role, although it’s reported he ultimately turned it down.

Pre-production on “Suicide Squad” is slated to begin this April. Directed by David Ayer, the film is expected for release on Aug. 5, 2016.
