THR has reported that the following actors along the characters they’ll be OFFICIALLY playing
Jared Leto – The Joker
Will Smith – Deadshot
Tom Hardy – Rick Flag
Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn
Jai Courtney – Boomerang
Cara Delevingne – Enchantress
Charles Roven and Richard Suckle are producing. Exec producing are Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, who are already shepherding many of the DC movies, as well as Colin Wilson and DC’s COO Geoff Johns.
Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), who was rumored to be involved with the movie, is not part of the official team, nor the official cast, according to sources. But that does not rule out a cameo appearance for him or other actors playing villains or heroes in the Warners’ other DC-based movies.
“The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one,” said Greg Silverman, president, creative development and worldwide production, in the announcement.
“David Ayer returns to the studio where he wrote Training Day and brings his incredible ability to craft multidimensional villains to this iconic DC property with a cast of longtime Warner collaborators Will Smith and Tom Hardy, and other new and returning favorites: Margot, Jared, Jai and Cara,” Silverman continued. “We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero.”
The movie has a release date of Aug. 5, 2016.
