"Suicide Squad" Filming Updates

Confirming initial reports from TorontoFilm.Net last month, Warners have booked a studio location and start date for their "Dirty Dozen"-like superhero feature "Suicide Squad", adapting the DC Comics series:

"...Warner Bros. and director David Ayer ("Fury") will start principal photography April 2015 in Toronto, @ Pinewood Toronto Studios, with filming throughout the city until September. Production title will be "Bravo 14", with a cast including Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Jesse Eisenberg  as 'Lex Luthor'..."

Actress Margot Robbie ("The Wolf Of Wall Steet") has reportedly been cast to play 'Harley Quinn', a psychotic female character, that originally debuted in television's "Batman: The Animated Series".

"...'Harley Quinn' aka 'Dr. Harleen Quinzel', was an 'Arkham Asylum' psychiatrist who became obsessed with 'The Joker' while treating him. 

"Ultimately, she became his assistant, engaging in a psychologically and physically-abusive relationship..."

The character first appeared as live-action, played by actress Mia Sara in the "Birds of Prey" TV series... as a 'Deranged Female Inmate' played by Cassidy Alexa and voiced by Tara Strong on The CW's "Arrow".
