Will Smith and director David Ayer must have decided they liked working together on Suicide Squad, as Variety reports they’re thinking about getting together again for Bright, based on a script by Max Landis. It doesn’t look like any deals with Smith have been signed yet, but he is interested.
However, it appears Ayer is more committed, as Landis recently tweeted about Ayer rewriting his spec cript for Bright, saying, ‘David Ayer translating a whole script of mine into Ayer-sian is a huge, bizarre honor. Like reading the same script from an alternate dimension.’
There’s not a vast amount of detail known about the script, but it’s suggested that it will be somewhat similar in tone to David Ayer’s End Of Watch, but set in a world where the likes of Orcs and fairies live alongside human. As both End Of Watch and Landis’ Chronicle went down the found footage route, there’s a decent chance this will do the same.
While Smith and Ayer are expected to make a sequel to Suicide Squad, that’s not due to start shooting until 2017, with the hope they can fit in Bright this year.
