Will Smith will play Deadshot (Floyd Lawton) in the upcoming movie Suicide Squad. The actor said that he was attracted to the role because he wanted to work with director David Ayer and also play a negative character. “I had never played a character that legitimately didn’t give a f*ck. It’s very freeing not having to carry the moral spine of the movie,” Smith told Entertainment Weekly.

Smith initially had a hard time playing the role. “I couldn’t find a model to understand what would make someone comfortable killing another person for money. David walked me through that. He found a book for me (The Anatomy of Motive by John Douglas), and I worked through getting into the mind of serial killers. Once I accepted the (notion the author puts forth) that it feels good, that really exploded the idea in my mind of Deadshot,” he revealed, according to comicbook.com.

 

Suicide Squad is set to release on August 5, 2016, and will also star Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne and more.
