Director James Gunn takes to social media to offer up he is still keeping busy by working on The Suicide Squad from home amid the coronavirus scare, lockdown and quarantine.
Gunn finished filming The Suicide Squad right on time as the flick is now in pre-production; however, the same can’t be said about The Batman which has seen director Matt Reeves forced to stop filming in the UK.
“Working on The Suicide Squad edit (from home), writing, meditating, exercising, talking with my gf, talking with others on my phone, playing with my cat & dog, making a Spotify playlist for you guys,” Gunn tweeted Saturday.
