David Ayer

Universal has been very keen on getting their remake of “Scarface” in front of cameras, and have even set a release date for next year, and while they have a star in Diego Luna, they haven’t had a director. Antoine Fuqua had been attached for a while, but exited to focus on “The Equalizer 2,” and while David Mackenzie (“Hell or High Water“) and Peter Berg (“Deepwater Horizon,” “Patriots Day“) were said to be possible replacements, another name has landed the gig.

If you ever wanted a movie that reteamed “Suicide Squad” actor Will Smith and director David Ayer, with a screenplay by Max Landis, well “Bright” is for you. And it ain’t coming cheap. Netflix has thrown at least $90 million into the blockbuster sized effort, which brings together a cast which also includes Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, and Edgar Ramirez all in service of a quirky premise: the story takes place in a world where faeries and orcs live with humans, and will center on an orc cop.

It’s not a secret that “Suicide Squad” was a fraught production. Not unlike another movie opening this weekend, the anti-superhero movie went through extensive reshoots, and even saw Warner Bros. and director David Ayer cutting their own versions of the movie, before meeting in the middle and delivering the film you saw in theaters. While nothing got hostile in public, you might think that the studio and director might not be in a big rush to work together again, but you’d be wrong.

The reshoot heavy, panic button pushing, executive shakeup, over-managed road to “Suicide Squad” wasn’t the smoothest ride for all involved, and that really showed in the final product. Sure, the film may have earned $745 million worldwide at the box office, but it did little to convince anybody — especially following the “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” — that Warner Bros. has any idea what they’re doing with their DC Films universe.

A few days after Suicide Squad arrived on the big screen, a whole rundown of deleted scenes surfaced online, though we had no way of knowing if the list was accurate. Now that new footage is being put back into the movie by way of an extended cut coming to home video next month, we’re […] The post ‘Suicide Squad’ Extended Cut Trailer: Here’s Some Of The Joker & Harley Quinn’s Cut Scenes appeared first on /Film.
