Manitoba actor Adam Beach has landed a role in Suicide Squad, a film focused on a gang of super-villains from the DC Comics universe, including The Joker (Jared Leto), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Deadshot (Will Smith).

One source says Beach will play Slipknot, a master of ropes, in the film from director David Ayer, who tweeted a picture of the cast which also includes Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc). Leto is absent from the shot.

The film is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2016.

Beach, 42, currently teaches at the Adam Beach Film Institute on Ellice Avenue, but may be taking time off to shoot the film in Toronto.
