David Ayer, Director 2016 Suicide Squad, went on Twitter to discuss his filming experience.
The upcoming edition of James Gunn Suicide Squad the film has accumulated old feelings that Ayer needs to officially get off his chest. From his three-page letter posted on his Twitter last Thursday, fans now know a little more about his experience working on the film.
Ayer’s letter comes in response to a Tweet from film critic Tim Grierson for Screen Daily who said, “Well, here’s something I didn’t expect to write: I really loved Suicide Squad”, Wrote Grierson. “Many times watching the new film, I thought, ‘Yeah, David Ayer should just abandon the idea of directing the film.'”
As a writer / director David Ayer was hit (End of Guard, Training Day) or miss (Sabotage, Bright). However, all of his films have a signature tone and style that I can admit is missing in his version Suicide Squad. The 2016 film looks and feels like it was made in the board’s executive hall, so it’s understandable why Ayer gave it up.
“The studio part is not my film. Read it again, “he wrote. “And my part isn’t a 10-week director’s cut — it’s a fully mature montage by Lee Smith that stands out incredibly [sic] the work of John Gilroy. It’s all Steven Price’s brilliant music, in which there’s not a single radio song. It has traditional character arcs, amazing performance and solid third-act resolution. ”
Ayer remarked that he was not a hater. In fact, he praises Gunn’s version and all involved. “I am so proud of James and excited about the success that is coming. I support the World Bank and I am delighted that the franchise is getting the legs it needs, ”he wrote. “I support everything, the cast, the team. Every movie is a miracle. And Jame’s [sic] A brilliant work will be a miracle of miracles. “
Warner Bros. will not set aside the same amount of money they gave Zack Snyder to complete his part League of Justice, so let’s hope Ayer’s suicide squad doesn’t require any re-recordings or additional recordings. Can the director collect enough noise around #releasetheayercut for HBO to agree?
Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters in the U.S. and on the HBO Max streaming platform on Aug. 6.
