David Ayer Slams ‘Suicide Squad’ Producer Warner Bros., Says “The Studio Cut Is Not My Movie”
Ayer has accused Warner Bros. of significantly re-editing his movie from its initial concept, in light of James Gunn’s impending remake The Suicide Squad’s early accolades and similarities to Ayer’s dismal 2016 effort.
Fans are already siding with David Ayer and asking the makers (Warner Bros.) to release Ayer’s version of “Suicide Squad”. And thus they are trending #ReleaseTheAyerCut and ReleaseTheAyerCut Story on twitter in support of director David Ayer. Earlier to this we have seen fans applauding Snyder cut of the film “Justice League”. This is no different.
Ayer stated in a long tweet titled “My Turn” that he had “spent my life into Suicide Squad” “I’ve created something incredible. There are some nasty individuals who are abused and abandoned in my cut (a theme that resonates in my soul). The studio edit of my film is not the one that has been released. That’s worth reading a second time. John Gilroy’s outstanding work is built upon by Lee Smith’s edit, which is a completely developed version of the director’s cut. All of the music is composed by Steven Price, and there isn’t a single radio tune in the whole thing. In the third act, there are excellent resolutions to the character’s journeys, as well as outstanding performances. People who’ve witnessed it are few and far between. “
“Having saying that, I have never revealed my side of the storey and I would never do so,” Ayer stated. That’s just how I’m wired. As a result, I kept my lips shut and endured a torrent of personal criticism that was at times shocking.”
“I’m very proud of him,” the filmmaker said, adding that he supports WB and is “thrilled” that the franchise is gaining the momentum it requires. Astonishing results are expected from James’ outstanding effort, and “I will never longer talk publicly on the subject.”

It was an uncommon move for Warner Bros. to employ several editors to reduce Suicide Squad before its release. This version of the play has Gilroy listed as a contributor. There had been “a lot of testing and cooperation along the road,” Warner Bros. stated at the time. “We are really happy of the result,” Warner Bros. added.
On January 1, 2019, Ann Sarnoff was named CEO of WarnerMedia. Since then, Warner Bros. has seen a significant regime shift. Zack Snyder’s Justice League director’s cut was released in March, prompting some to urge for a similar release of Suicide Squad. “We won’t be developing David Ayer’s cut,” Sarnoff told Variety in March. He tweeted “Why?” after the news was published.
Warner Bros. didn’t comment on this matter yet.
