A couple of weeks ago saw it reported that The Shallows-helmer Jaume Collet-Serra was WB's top choice to direct the Suicide Squad sequel, but now it's learned Jaume Collet-Serra will not direct. Production is set to get underway next spring.

While few plot details on the project have been announced, the film will be based on the iconic Disney theme park attraction which takes guests on a guided tour through the rivers around the world.

Jungle Cruise's most recent draft was penned by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, the duo behind the upcoming fouth installment in the rebooted Star Trek series. The director has been eyed by many studios for a number of projects as of late, but when he emerged as the frontrunner to helm Suicide Squad 2 it seemed likely he was going to join the DCEU as Warner Bros. works to course-correct (somewhat) in the wake of Wonder Woman's success. The original film grossed $745 million worldwide and the ensemble that includes Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto are poised to return.

According to the report, there are now 2700 complaints and a few more crashes that are believed to be related to the issue. The regulatory body may have received certain reports that the SUV combusts carbon monoxide in certain driving scenarios.

It looks like the DC Extended Univese may have just lost its director for Suicide Squad 2. While his debut feature - a remake of House of Wax - drew mixed reviews from horror fans, 2009's Orphan proved to be a big sleeper hit with the genre community, almost quadrupling its reported $20 million budget at the worldwide box office. Collet-Serra most recently wrapped the Liam Neeson starrer The Commuter, which Lionsgate will release January 12. John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment will also produce.

Collet-Serra is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Hansen Jacobson.
