Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman and Jay Hernandez have joined the ensemble cast of Warner Bros.’ antihero comic book adaptation Suicide Squad.
Joel Kinnaman (Run All Night, RoboCop) will replace actor Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, the team leader. Jay Hernandez (Friday Night Lights) is in negotiations to join the cast in an as yet unknown role.
Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) is nearing a multi-picture deal to play Suicide Squad boss, Amanda Waller and Jesse Eisenberg (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) is in talks to reprise his upcoming role as Lex Luthor.
David Ayer (Fury) is directing the action adventure starring Will Smith as Deadshot; Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn; Jared Leto as the Joker; Jai Courtney as Boomerang; and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress.
‘Suicide Squad’ centers on a team of incarcerated supervillains who undertake missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences.
The film is slated for release on August 5, 2016.

On the day to day level, this movie is times 10 in the articles posted about it vs. Robocop and others. It's way too overwhelming to capture it all.
Everyone should feel free to post whatever is of interest to them, even if it's just a link. It is much appreciated! If you like comics, we'll be as interested in the comics for background material as in the movie itself.
For my part, I'll focus mostly on articles about Joel, and to a certain extent on Margot Robbie since she's also in Tarzan. If there's another actor of interest to you, feel free to post on them, or to let me know and I'll keep up with the news too.

IF the posts are true, they imply he's there for both Bends and SS? We do know Rosamund Pike would now be finished with awards season, so who knows. If The Bends is a small film, they might be working it in this month? But that seems odd to me given how there's been no casting or other word on it at all since the first announcement.
If the filming on SS begins filming in April, that's not very far away, esp. when they are coordinating a large cast and production. I presume they are already well underway on much of the work and have seen pictures of them building sets. I remember Joel doing a lot of work before filming began in Robocop, such as all the very complex outfit fittings. Then I'd also presume there are a lot of meetings and cast run-throughs.
He was in NYC this past weekend. So he could have just been doing a quick hop up to Toronto to make his personal arrangements. Also, I presume he'll be back in NYC for the premiere of Run All Night in just a couple weeks, plus will probably have PR duty for it between now and then. So, he might be setting up on the East coast.
But this confirms why we at the Dome like to post the actual text of stories from the day an actor is named to a film. We never know when we'll be going back through our virtual rummage bins and scrapbooks.
Here are some links from Joel's Robocop topic about filming in Toronto. Blink our eyes and they are relevant again.
1. "According to the Toronto Film and Television Office, the upcoming Robocop reboot will begin filming in the city in September and will be based at Pinewood Toronto Studios, Port Lands, Toronto."
Pinewood Group is a huge filming studio in Toronto with lots of global locations that could probably accommodate anything he's working on:

We sure hope everything is ok and he continues to lock down one more movie for 2015 in addition to The Bends. http://batman-news.com/2015/02/17/cara-delevingne-reportedly-seeing-shrink-prepare-suicide-squad-role/

The big event for today was Jared Leto's haircut.

So far Rick's not in the Lego video, but they are adding characters as they go. Suicide Squad (just 'Squad' in the kiddie version) has already made it to Legoland.

Jared Leto's new look. The presumption is that it's bleached blond so it can be dyed green for filming.
