Golden Globe winner Idris Elba and WWE star John Cena suited up in orange prison uniforms and Crocs while shooting The Suicide Squad at a former jail in Georgia on Tuesday.

Filming for James Gunn's reboot reportedly took place at the former Augusta Richmond County Law Enforcement Center, which has been closed since 2014.

Cena cryptically shared Instagram snaps Tuesday and Wednesday of The Shawshank Redemption climactic tunnel reveal and a go-directly-to-jail card from the Monopoly board game. 

Joining Idris and John was Oscar winner Viola Davis wearing a white skirt suit and black pussy-bow blouse crafted by costume designer Judianna Makovsky.

The Suicide Squad welcomes back Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, and Jai Courtney and introduces Pete Davidson, Nathan Fillion, Taika Waititi, Storm Reid, Michael Rooker, and Peter Capaldi.
