Suicide Squad is still looking for its leader – Jake Gyllenhaal has reportedly turned down the chance to replace Tom Hardy in the film.
The star got the offer to play the role of Rick Flagg by his End of Watch director David Ayer after Hardy dropped out of the project earlier this month, but now Variety reports he too has stepped away from the project.
Hardy was said to have dropped out of the film due to scheduling conflicts.
Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne are still all committed to the movie, which focuses on a gang of comic book villains given the chance to redeem themselves.
The film is scheduled to hit theaters in August, 2016.
