The Suicide Squad finished filming

‘The Suicide Squad’ director and writer James Gunn has revealed that the sequel to the 2016 blockbuster has finished filming. He made this known in an Instagram post.

“And that’s a wrap on #TheSuicideSquad,” Gunn wrote. “My father died two weeks before we started filming and my dog died two weeks before the end. It was a hard, hard time in my life and yet the most fulfilling time I’ve ever had making a movie. The professionalism, talent, compassion and kindness of this cast and crew inspired me every day. Thanks to everyone involved in this film, in every stage of development, in every department – I am grateful from the bottom of my heart for you all. You are why I make movies.”

The movie stars Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, and Jai Courtney reprising their roles from the 2016 film, and also appears to be heading towards a comedic approach with the casting of Nathan Fillion, Pete Davidson, and Taika Waititi among the impressive list of supporting players.
