16 October 2017 12:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After approaching the likes of Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge) and Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows), Warner Bros. finally found its director for Suicide Squad 2 last month in Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant), and now Suicide Squad star Jared Leto has shared a few words of praise for the filmmaker.

“I think Gavin is incredibly talented, he seems to be the perfect director for Suicide Squad 2,” Leto told Collider during a promotional interview for his new film Blade Runner 2049. “I think he’s a really gifted filmmaker and I really love his work.”

Leto also revealed that, much like Margot Robbie, he’s unsure as to what’s next for the Clown Prince of Crime, stating that there’s “a lot of moving parts, we’ll see what happens” when asked if Suicide Squad 2 or the Joker and Harley Quinn film is next on the DC slate.

The Academy Expels Harvey Weinstein, Breaking with Tradition

14 October 2017 1:18 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The board of governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences met Saturday morning for more than two hours to determine whether or not Harvey Weinstein should remain a member of the Tiffany organization that exists to promote the art of motion pictures. This breaks with tradition, as in 90 years the Academy has only revoked membership once, for a movie pirate who broke its rules.

Here’s their statement on expelling Weinstein forthwith:

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors met today to discuss the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, and has voted well in excess of the required two-thirds majority to immediately expel him from the Academy. We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory »
