Jake Gyllenhaal is in negotiations to replace Tom Hardy in comic book movie Suicide Squad.

The Dark Knight Rises star was cast as Rick Flagg, the leader of the group of infamous villains, but he reportedly dropped out of the film because of scheduling issues.

Gyllenhaal has now been offered Hardy’s role by his End of Watch director David Ayer, but he has yet to sign on, according to multiple reports.

If the star takes on the role, he will join Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne in the film, which will be based on the comic book series about a group of supervillains who are given a chance to redeem themselves with a deadly mission.

The film is slated to hit theaters in August, 2016.
