Hollywould: ‘The Suicide Squad,’ ‘Akira,’ and ‘Booster Gold’
The film and television business moves at a mile a minute, so keeping up with the latest news can be a little daunting. Not to worry—we have your back. In Hollywould, we’ll round up the industry developments you need to know. Here’s what you may have missed:
The Suicide Squad
Joel Kinnaman took to Instagram to show that he is indeed returning as Rick Flag.
The New Mutants
Producer, Simon Kinberg, confirmed that reshoots are on the way:
“For all of these movies, Marvel’s really brilliant at scheduling pick-ups into their budget and schedule so it’s all prepared, and we have never been that smart. For us, we’re always scrambling to get these actors back together so they’re all in the same place at the same time.”
North American Lake Monsters
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Hulu has picked up an adaptation of Nathan Ballingrud’s collection of short stories, North American Lake Monsters.
“The series will explore how encounters with vampires, fallen angels and other monsters force Louisiana natives to re-examine their broken lives in what is being described as a contemporary horror anthology. The take will be an individual episodic anthology in line with Into the Dark rather than Castle Rock’s seasonal variety.”
The long delayed live-action of Akira is happening (for real this time… maybe), and Taika Waititi’s behind the camera, according to Deadline. It’s scheduled for May 14, 2021.

Screenwriter, Zack Stentz, told The Fanboy Podcast that a screenplay is done:
“I do not know what’s going on with it right now, honestly. And I don’t know if the DC people know what’s going on with it. Their strategy seems to change depending on how […] most recent movie did. But I can tell you that a script has been turned in that the director and producer, Greg Berlanti, has proclaimed himself to be very happy with. And it’s something that’s ready to go, but DC and Warner Bros. would need to give the greenlight to it. The ball is in their court.”
