The Suicide Squad film might have finally found its flag-bearer.
The French movie news site Allocine is quoting Joel Kinnaman as confirming he will be playing a role in the upcoming Suicide Squad film. Kinnaman doesn't say what his role will be, but recent rumors placed him as the replacement for Tom Hardy in the role of Rick Flag.
"All I can say is that I will be in the movie, and it's going to be amazing," says Kinnaman, according a translated article from Allocine.
Suicide Squad is scheduled for release August 5, 2016, with filming set to begin in April. The movie is directed by David Ayer, and stars Jared Leto as the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robie as Harley Quinn and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
