Created in 1959 by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, the “Suicide Squad” story revolves around a group of imprisoned villains known as Task Force X, or the Suicide Squad, who are recruited by a secret government agency to carry out a dangerous, secret, mission in exchange for their freedom.

Kinnaman will be joining Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, and newcomer Cara Delevingne as the Enchantress.

Viola Davis is a possible pick for Amanda Waller, and Jesse Eisenberg for arch-evil-guy Lex Luthor.

The movie will open in theaters nationwide Aug. 5, 2016.

Kinnaman’s mother is Jewish, descended from Ukrainian Jewish immigrants to Sweden.
