NEW YORK (AP) – Will Smith, Jared Leto and Tom Hardy are suiting up for DC Comics’ super-villain team-up film Suicide Squad.

Warner Bros. confirmed the much anticipated casting of the film in an announcement Tuesday. Smith will star as Deadshot, Hardy will play the group’s leader, Rick Flagg, and Leto will take on the Joker, following in Heath Ledger’s footsteps. The rest of the gang will be Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn; Jai Courtney as Boomerang; and Cara Delevinge as Enchantress.

David Ayer, who recently released the World War II tank thriller Fury, will write and direct.

Suicide Squad is to be released in August 2016.
