With Suicide Squad director David Ayer signed on to direct the female-driven Gotham City Sirens, there’s been a whole host of speculation on who will helm the already-announced Suicide Squad sequel. While Mel Gibson was at one point the frontrunner for the gig, now comes a new update that puts a new name in the frame.

As per Deadline, it’s believed that Orphan and The Shallows’ Jaume Collet-Serra is now the frontrunner to take the director’s chair for Task Force X’s next outing. A script is currently being worked on by Zak Penn, with the current plan being to start shooting next year.

It’s not known just which characters will be returning for the Suicide Squad follow-up, although it’s presumed that the majority of the cast will be back to reprise their villainous roles.

As well as Gibson, other notable names linked to the gig have been Ruben Fleischer, Jonathan Levine, and Daniel Espinosa. Now, though, it appears that Warner Brothers have decided that Collet-Serra is their man.

Expect more on this as we get it.
