According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Ayer, the writer/director of Sabotage, End of Watch, and the upcoming Fury, is eyeing working on Warner Bros/DC Entertainment's upcoming Suicide Squad film.

Suicide Squad is a DC team book about incarcerated villains looking for a way to redeem themselves/get out of jail. The Suicide Squad team goes on over-the-top missions and the death of team members is expected, hence the name. The team features Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Black Manta and more.

Justin Marks has been attached to this book as a writer for the past couple of years, but it seems it was put aside so Warner Bros can work on other projects (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). Chuck Roven is also attached to produce the film.

It seems like a fantastic idea to have Ayer jump onto this film, since he makes some gritty, violent films, which is what this franchise really needs. What do you guys think?
