THE SHALLOWS Director Jaume Collet-Serra Could Direct SUICIDE SQUAD 2 If Mel Gibson Passes
As of right now, the offer is still out to Mel Gibson to direct Suicide Squad 2. He still hasn't made a decision on whether he's going to direct it or not. If Gibson decides not to do it, Warner Bros. reportedly has another director in mind to take it on. That director is Jaume Collet-Serra.
Collet-Serra is the director who brought us films such as Orphan, Unknown, Non-Stop, and most recently, The Shallows, which was my favorite movie of his. The news comes from Jeff Sneider of Mashable on a recent episode of his Meet the Movie Press podcast, and this is what he had to say about the director:
"He delivers hits on a mid-sized budget. He can make a lot out of a little... He's a slick director. He's a diverse hire."
I think that Collet-Serra would make a fun and entertaining film that is comparable to the first movie. But I don't think it will be any better than that. If they want a great Suicide Squad sequel, though, they've got to get Gibson on board.
What do you all think about the possibility of Collect-Serra taking on Suicide Squad 2?
