Suicide Squad to Begin Filming Soon in Toronto

DC Entertainment is about to begin production on the highly anticipated supervillain thriller Suicide Squad in Toronto.

We are still almost two year away from the anticipated release of the DC Entertainment supervillain extravaganza known as Suicide Squad, but it seems like the party is just about to get started.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming on Suicide Squad will officially kick off pre-production in February at Pinewood Studios in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The film, which is being directed by Fury director David Ayer, will then begin filming in and around the Toronto area starting in mid-April.

A great deal of information about the highly-anticipated film has been kept under strict lock and key. With the exception of a shell of a synopsis, there has been no official word on just where the story is going to lead us when the film premieres in theaters in 2016.

Another thing that has yet to be fully revealed is the cast of the film. It has already been announced that The Wolf of Wall Street actress Margot Robbie has been cast as the slightly-psychotic villain Harley Quinn in the film.

The Hollywood Reporter is divulging that Divergent and Insurgent star Jai Courtney, Mad Max: Fury Road actor Tom Hardy, and Dallas Buyers Club actor and 30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto are all in the final stages of negotiating their roles in the upcoming film.

For those of you who are not familiar with the backstory of the Suicide Squad, it is a group of villains that were put together with the express intention of them earning time off of their sentences for assisting the government in certain dangerous missions where they don’t want to risk a top agent.

We must say that if everyone that DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. are negotiating with sign on the bottom line, this is going to be a very interesting cast combination. We can’t wait to see how things play out.

Suicide Squad is scheduled to be released on August 5, 2016.
