As production on James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is about to kick-off next month at Pinewood Atlanta Studios, Deadline has learned about a new cast addition.
German comedian Flula Borg will play an undisclosed role that will be the love interest of an unknown character in the movie.
German actor, DJ and comedian Flula Borg we hear is joining James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Borg’s role is being kept under wraps, but we hear he’s playing a love interest to one of the characters in the Warner Bros. release.
The returning cast is Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag. The new additions are reportedly Idris Elba, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man, John Cena, and possibly Storm Reid as Elba’s daughter.
Figuring they’re all expendable, a U.S. intelligence officer decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission.
Warner Bros. has set The Suicide Squad for a release date of August 6th, 2021.
