David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad will be shooting in Toronto.

The big-budget actioner, with a working title Bravo 14, has booked into Pinewood Toronto Studios for pre-production starting in February. The Furydirector will then have the cameras rolling on the Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment feature from mid-April to September in and around Toronto.

Jai Courtney, Tom Hardy,Margot Robbie and Jared Leto are in the final stages of talks for roles. Colin Wilson is producing.

The DC property about convicted supervillains who are given a chance to redeem themselves through dangerous missions has been in the works for some time at Warner Bros.
