Will Smith excited to play Deadshot in Suicide Squad movie

There is a lot of excitement surround the upcoming Suicide Squad movie and, despite the fact that we are still waiting for an announcement about which actor will replace Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, it seems that even the stars involved are excited about the project. Hollywood star Will Smith will take on the role of Deadshot in Suicide Squad and Will has revealed how director David Ayer is already well ahead of schedule.

Smith explained to USA Today, "We've still got to get it right. [David Ayer] turned the screenplay in before Christmas. What happens is Hollywood shuts down. But he was still working and he wanted to (start shooting) April 13th. So it takes a couple weeks to gear back up at the top of the year and people have taken (other) movies. He's moving really quickly."

Playing such a well know comic book character on the big screen means making sure that you look the part and Will Smith says that he has already been preparing for the role. Will says that he has been working out and is on a strict diet, "Oh god yes. I started before Christmas. No carbs on Christmas! It was terrible," added Smith.

As well as starring Will Smith in the role of Deadshot, the Suicide Squad film will also see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, while it is also believed that Jesse Eisenberg will appear in his role as Lex Luthor. Suicide Squad will open on August 5, 2016 in both the US and the UK.
