Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor

The directing gig then passed on to Gavin O'Connor (The Accountant, Warrior), but according to IMDb, he has no less than SIX projects that he is now signed on to direct, and with Gunn coming on board as writer, it would make sense for him to take on directing duties, too.

The film's entire main cast, including Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Vin Diesel all signed an open letter to Disney defending the director, expressing their "love, support and gratitude for James". It is unclear who will direct the next Guardians film, though there has been speculation that Thor: Ragnarok's Taika Waititi would be a logical candidate given the offbeat nature of that hit film matched the quirkiness of Guardians.

Suicide Squad 2 doesn't have a release date yet. The studio is likely going to experiment with an R-rating for the upcoming Joker solo movie, so perhaps it'll give Gunn a chance to take the Suicide Squad to some even more mature places with this sequel. I've shot most of it already. Formally announced projects like Flashpoint, Green Lantern Corps, a Harley Quinn/Joker romance and a Cyborg solo film have been thrown into limbo as well. Joke should have been main bad guy.

It's not clear if the plan would survive a legal challenge. "I'm not sure its legally viable", the Telegraph quoted him as saying. A Shorten government would set up a new independent body, he said, to investigate which industries had true labour shortages.

Oil extends losses as markets fall, inventories climb
The prices are being driven up in part because crude oil inventories continue to rise, meaning there's a plentiful supply. The facility is the only U.S. port able to fully load and unload tankers with a capacity of 2 million barrels of oil.

We should reiterate that, at the moment, Gunn has only been hired to write the next Suicide Squad.

According to Variety film reporter Justin Kroll, there's another reason why O'Connor is no longer behind the helm: his story for Suicide Squad 2 apparently "ended up being nearly identical to the Birds of Prey story". Reports are suggesting that this new movie will maybe not be a direct sequel to the first film.

Marvel and Disney's reputation is a little too clean-cut to make room for James Gunn's dark past. Gunn, particularly if he ends up directing the film, has the chops to do the Suicide Squad justice, allowing them to have a whole lot of devilish fun while discovering, and earning, a sense of kinship. And we bet there will be a catchy tune or two in there somewhere, as well.
