David Ayer is to take the director’s chair for the fantasy cop thriller ‘Bright,’ with his ‘Suicide Squad’ star Will Smith and Joel Edgerton (‘Jane Got A Gun,’ ‘Black Mass’) in talks to co-star.

Plot details for the Max Landis-scripted project are unknown, but according to reports, the film is likened to Ayer’s ‘End of Watch’ with the action taking place in a world where Orcs and fairies live among humans.

Ayer’s latest, the eagerly awaited villain team-up ‘Suicide Squad,’ hits Irish cinemas August 5, 2016.
