Cara Delevingne Eyed For SUICIDE SQUAD Role?
LatinoReview is hearing another actress being linked for a role in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. British actress Cara Delevingne is being eyed for the film. The newcomer is best known for smaller roles in films like Joe Wright's Anna Karenina and Pan, the latter is another Warner Bros. picture. Apparently, Disney is interested in her for Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Her next couple of films will see her working with Johnny Depp in London Fields and Kate Beckinsale in the thriller The Face of An Angel.
Her part in the film isn't being revealed, but there is some speculation with some rewrites it could be Harley Quinn.
Previously, Aussie actress Margot Robbie had been wanted for a female lead in the film. Robbie is known for being in the mix and quickly getting out of it. Margot had been in the running for leads in Fox's Fantastic Four and Dreamworks' Ghost In The Shell, but didn't land the roles. It might be a similar case with Suicide Squad, as other projects could peek her interest and drag her away. S
She seems like a great fit for the project working with Warner Bros. on Wolf of Wall Street, Focus and the Tarzan remake. Working with Will Smith in Focus was our nod this could be a reason the studio wanted to re-team the two actors. Smith's role isn't being revealed, but it's a strong possibility it's Deadshot. The self-appointed leader of the villain team. Tom Hardy is also in the mix, I assume for the role of weapons expert Harkness (Captain Boomerang). There is word via Deadline that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor could also factor into the film.
