British model and actress Cara Delevingne is reportedly being seriously considered for a role in Fury and "End of Watch" director David Ayer's film version of DC Entertainment's "Suicide Squad" comic book for Warner Bros says Latino Review.
The report suggests that Delevigne may be playing The Joker's sidekick Harley Quinn.
Quinn's character was not in the early drafts of the script, but that
may change since Ayer is expected to perform re-writes.
Delevigne also posted an illustration of Quinn on her Instagram page earlier this month which is one reason she has been mentioned to potentially play Quinn in 'Squad'.
Delevigne is also reportedly being considered for a role in Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales as well.
The comic centers on incarcerated villains from the DC universe being recruited as deniable
assets by the Government to go on high-risk black ops missions in
exchange for more lenient or even commuted sentences. Amanda Waller is in charge of the program.
Will Smith, Tom Hardy Ryan Gosling and "The Wolf of Wall Street" actress Margot Robbie are all reportedly fielding offers for "Squad".
Jesse Eisenberg could reprise his role as Lex Luthor in the film says Deadline. Eisenberg plays Lex in Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" and if the character shows up in 'Squad' it would link back to the DC Cinematic Universe which the film doesn't
really have on the surface.
Dan Lin is producing the pic with Charles Roven from an initial script by Justin Marks.
The film has a 2016 release date planned.
Several of the characters have showed up on The CW's popular Arrow TV series and that trend will continue.
