With James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad continuing to amass its ensemble cast ahead of a 2021 release, now comes word on another name joining the picture.
Courtesy of Deadline, Flula Borg has joined The Suicide Squad in a role that’s described as a love interest to one of the titular Task Force X.

This latest addition joins a cast that currently features the likes of Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Idris Elba, Storm Reid, David Dastmalchian, and Daniela Melchior – although Margot Robbie and Will Smith will not be back for the sequel-cum-reboot.
To be written and directed by Gunn, The Suicide Squad – yes, the title for the Suicide Squad follow-up is The Suicide Squad – is currently set for an August 6th, 2021 release.
