Tom Hardy was supposed to play Rick Flag in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer. Rumors said his agenda was full and there is no chance for him to shoot this movie if it’s going to come out in 2016. Other sites claim Hardy didn’t like the script and he left the project.
Jake Gyllenhaal turned down the role and now it seems we have our Rick Flag and it’s the new Robocop. Joel Kinnaman will take the role according to The Wrap.
Kinnaman is good. He was likeable in the last Robocop movie and we will have to wait and see him in Run All Night, but it seems like a decent choice. We never seen this character in the big screen and the character is not even that well-known in the comic books. Joel has the chance to own the role and mold it however he wants.
I heard good stuff about the script and under David Ayer’s direction this movie could be good. Kinnaman has talent, I’m just bummed by the fact that one of my favorite actors left the film in the first place. The actor joins a big cast which includes Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Jared Leto, and Cara Delevigne.
