'Suicide Squad' Director David Ayer Calls Reshoot Rumors "Silly"
Suicide Squad director David Ayer has taken to social media to push back against a recent rumor that the movie was being reworked via reshoots, calling the speculation "silly."
According to the rumor, which first surfaced via a Birth Movies Death article at the end of last month, Suicide Squad was undergoing reshoots described as adding more humor to the film after the positive response to the lighter tone of the movie's first official trailer.
Ayer's Twitter response, released after the debut of a new trailer for the pic during Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, didn't just deny the rumors; he suggested that the reshoots were the result of Warner Bros. being excited by an early version of the feature.
Suicide Squad is set to be released Aug. 5.
