The Peacemaker series from The Suicide Squad director James Gunn gets a working title as production eyes a start date.

A new report seemingly explains when James Gunn’s Peacemaker series begins filming in addition to revealing the working title for the HBO Max spin-off from 2021’s The Suicide Squad. In recent news, it was confirmed that Steve Agee will reprise one of his roles from the the film in the John Cena series, playing Belle Reve’s Warden John Economos. Now, according to a new report, the show starts production at the start of 2021.

According to The Ronin, when Peacemaker starts filming in Vancouver from January to June 2021, it’ll be under the working title The Scriptures. Since John Cena’s character believes in fighting for justice even if that means embracing ultra-violence, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the character get a little self-righteous or even have a vaguely religious side to him.
