Guy Ritchie's latest film, King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, is in theatres now. Quite the change from his usual projects, Ritchie is a director better known for capper films centred around crooks. Thus, it comes as no surprise that he's recently expressed interest in helming the upcoming sequel to David Ayer's Suicide Squad.
Speaking with Variety, Ritchie was asked if Warner Bros. had approached him to helm one of their DC comic book films. The director seems to hint that a few conversations may have taken place, but scheduling just didn't work out despite interest in taking on the comic book movie.
"I quite fancy doing Suicide Squad 2, because I thought I could do a good job with it. I can’t do it because I’m doing something else, but I’ve felt I could really do something with that."
Guy Ritchie will be working on Disney's live-action Aladdin as his next project.
Meanwhile, Warner Bros. has a few directors they're currently considering for the Suicide Squad sequel including Ruben Fleischer, Daniel Espinosa, Jonathan Levine and Mel Gibson.
