In a recent interview on The Howard Stern Show, Suicide Squad star Ike Barinholtz, whose role in the film has yet to be revealed, discussed working with Jared Leto on the set of the film and opened up about some of the crazy stories that we’ve heard about Leto’s presents to his fellow castmates. As a method actor, the Academy Award winner stayed in-character for about four months and in that period of time, he gave Margot Robbie and the rest of a cast a giant rat and a dead pig among other things. Here’s what Barinholtz told Stern about that:
The actor also mentioned that this production is probably the biggest he has ever worked on and that the film’s budget surpassed the $250 million mark. While it’s hard to believe that Warner Bros. would invest that amount of money in such a project after a rough year at the box office, Barinholtz’s comment goes to show that the studio is putting a lot of faith in its DC properties. What do you guys think? Do you believe that Suicide Squad was one of the most expensive movies ever made? Let us know in the comment section.
