This week, reports emerged that Mel Gibson is in talks to direct Suicide Squad 2. While no deal has been made, Warner Bros. is courting the actor-director for the gig while he gets familiar with the material. This is a terrible idea for several reasons.
Called Dragged Across Concrete, the movie will be a crime thriller about two cops (Gibson and Vaughn) who are suspended from their department when “a video of their strong-arm tactics gets wide attention.” What could possibly go wrong?? And based on Variety’s summary of the plot, it gets even worse.
