Tom Hardy suicide squad

UPDATE: Jake Gyllenhaal has passed on Suicide Squad. Original story follows with update below.

That Suicide Squad cast just got a hair less impressive. Tom Hardy has dropped out of the film, leaving his role as leader Rick Flagg up for grabs. The Mad Max and Inception actor was set to co-star with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne in the DC Comics adaptation, written and directed by David Ayer.

Despite Hardy’s exit, everything on the film is still on schedule. It’ll shoot this Spring aimed at an August 5, 2016 release date. Still, a replacement for Hardy is needed, and fast. In a very cool twist of events, apparently Ayer is looking at Jake Gyllenhaal to replace Hardy. Read more about the Jake Gyllenhall Tom Hardy Suicide Squad news below.
