Things are still coming together for the forthcoming “Suicide Squad” movie and it sounds like there may be a major change in the roster.
According to The Wrap, Jake Gyllenhaal has taken over the role of Rick Flagg from Tom Hardy, who was originally slated for the gig. Hardy’s film “The Revenant” is said to be running over its schedule, leaving little time before he begins the promotional duties for “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
What started out titled “Nailed,” has now become the much-anticipated political romantic comedy “Accidental Love,” and Millennium Entertainment has just released a preview trailer.

She meets an immoral congressman who takes advantage of her sex drive and capitalizes on her crusade as Joyce heads into her own career in politics.”
