Sylvester Stallone is set to star in the upcoming film The Suicide Squad, where he will join Margot Robbie, Idris Elba and John Cena, among others.

The movie’s director, James Gunn, revealed Stallone’s involvement in the movie through an Instagram post last Sunday, Nov. 15.

“Always love working with my friend @officialslystallone [and] our work today on #TheSuicideSquad was no exception,” he said alongside a photo of him and the actor.

“Despite Sly being an iconic movie star, most people still don’t have any idea what an amazing actor this guy is,” Gunn added.

Stallone also spoke about joining the production on his own page and shared a screenshot of a Deadline report on Gunn’s announcement.

“Working with this incredible Director on this astounding project has made this an amazing year,” the actor said. “I am a very lucky man to be surrounded by such talent!”

The Suicide Squad is set to premiere on Aug. 6, 2021 and is the sequel to the 2016 movie Suicide Squad, which was directed by David Ayer. The new film will also feature Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman and Peter Capaldi.

Stallone and Gunn last worked together on the 2017 superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, where he portrayed the character named Stakar Ogord.
