After several speculations on whether we will see Joel again as Rick Flagg, Discussing Film has confirmed that he will be back for The Suicide Squad!

In 2019, we have ‘The Suicide Squad’ going into production in September in Atlanta with James Gunn set to write and direct and Peter Safran set to produce. Fans wondered who from the original film would return, and as of writing, it has been revealed that Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney will reprise his role as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis will reprise her role as Amanda Waller and although Will Smith will not return, Idris Elba will instead take over the role of Deadshot.

However, fans have wondered about whether Joel Kinnaman will reprise their respective role as Rick Flagg, and now we can confirm that Joel Kinnaman will reprise his role as Rick Flagg in James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’.

James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ seems to be continuing the story of Task Force X whilst building the universe with Collider reporting that Ratcatcher, Peacemaker, King Shark and Polka Dot Man will feature in the new team roster as well as Revenge of the Fans reporting that an alien woman will also appear in the film (maybe Rampage?).

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman starrer The Secrets We Keep, Israeli director Yuval Adler’s follow-up to his Berlin out-of-competition entry The Operative, has pretty much sold out worldwide at Berlin’s European Film Market.

Stuart Ford’s AGC International has wrapped up multiple territory presales for the upcoming period thriller.

AGC closed deals for The Secrets We Keep in France (Amazon), Germany (Universum), Italy (Cloud Nine), Scandinavia (Svensk), Japan (Tohokushinsha), China (Jushi) and with Sun Distribution for Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Vertical Entertainment nabbed rights for the film across most of Eastern Europe, with CTB/Nashe Kino taking the title in CIS. Other deals include ones for Greece (Odeon), Indonesia (Cinema 21), Taiwan (Applause), Israel (United King) and the Middle East (Selim Ramia).

Adler, in Berlin for the world premiere Sunday night of his latest, the spy thriller The Operative, starring Diane Kruger and Martin Freeman, met with buyers one-on-one at AGC’s suite at the Ritz Carlton earlier in the week to pitch his new project. Rapace, who is an executive producer on the project, was at AGC’s offices pitching the project to buyers in Berlin.

Prometheus actress Rapace will play Maja, a holocaust survivor rebuilding her life in New York after World War II. But a random encounter with an eerily familiar man (Suicide Squad‘s Joel Kinnaman) — who seems to resemble her chief tormentor as she fled from the Nazi occupation in WWII — sets Maja off on a revenge mission. When she takes matters into her own hands, kidnapping the man, Maja sets in motion a series of memories and events that will change her whole perception of the truth.
