LOS ANGELES: Filmmaker James Gunn has assured fans that despite the coronavirus pandemic shutting down production on projects, the release of his upcoming films “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3” and “The Suicide Squad” will not be postponed.
The director is helming DC Comics film “The Suicide Squad”, the reboot to David Ayer’s 2016 film. The film is scheduled to be released on August 6, 2021.
In a Q&A session on Twitter Sunday, Gunn told one of the concerned fans, “Right now there’s no reason for #TheSuicideSquad release date to move.”
Saying that the team is on or even ahead of schedule, the director said, “We were extremely fortunate to wrap shooting & set up editing from our homes (due to a post production team & studio with foresight) before quarantine.”
Gunn was rehired for directing the third part of “GOTG”, the arrival of which he said, is also as planned.
