SUICIDE SQUAD 2 Director Search Continues As Jaume Collet-Serra Boards Dwayne Johnson's JUNGLE CRUISE

It looks like Warner Bros. is going to have to continue looking for someone to take the helm of the Suicide Squad sequel, as Jaume Collet-Serra has signed on to direct Jungle Cruise for Disney...

Following a recent report that The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra had emerged as Warner Bros.' first choice to helm Suicide Squad 2, Deadline has now revealed that the Spanish filmmaker has actually signed on to direct Disney's Jungle Cruise with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, taking him out of the running to replace David Ayer on the supervillain sequel.

Though Collet-Serra was said to be the studio's top choice, discussions were still taking place with several other directors, so they may already have someone in mind to take over. Could it be Mel Gibson, perhaps?

We knew both Will Smith and Margot Robbie were locked in to reprise the roles of Deadshot and Harley Quinn, but Jared Leto's return as The Joker was still up in the air. Well, according to Deadline the Academy Award-winner is indeed set to rejoin his castmates as The Clown Prince of Crime. 

We'll keep you updated on this, but for now be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place.
