'Life coach' for the Suicide Squad

Is David Ayer's upcoming supervillain flick really that dark?

The director has engaged the services of a "life coach" to help his Suicide Squad actors shed their characters after a day of shooting.

"David Ayer is about realism, so if your character is tormented, he wants you to torment yourself. He wants the real thing," Adam Beach, who plays Slipnot in the film, told E! News.

"Us actors explore very fine lines going to the dark side. He wants to make sure we finish a movie and don't disappear somewhere, then don't show up for work."

Suicide Squad, which celebrates some of the worst villains from the comic-book superhero world, is already seeing cast member Jared Leto going to extremes.

Playing up his character Joker, he recently sent some wild gifts to his co-stars, such as bullets to Will Smith and a live rat to Margot Robbie.
