Two Philly boys are set to star in an upcoming DC Comics film. Warner Bros. confirms that UArts alum Jared Leto and Philly-bred actor Will Smith will play supervillains Deadshot and The Joker (yes, that Joker)  in Suicide Squad, which, according to IMDB, follows a secret government agency of “highly skilled super villains who are assigned to execute dangerous tasks in exchange for shorter prison sentences.”

Other cast members include Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, and Cara Delevinge as Enchantress. The film will be written and directed by David Ayer, and it’s set to be released August 2016.
