The 2010 action spy-comedy "Red", starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren, was a pleasant surprise when it opened. Complete with a fun story and a great ensemble that had wonderful chemistry together, we were happy to learn that a sequel was on the way. Summit Entertainment is apparently so pleased with the sequel, that it looks like they are already moving forward on a third installment.
Screenwriter Jon and Erich Hoeber have penned the first and second films in the franchise and have now been hired to get moving on a third. The film was based on and adapted from Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's comic-book series.
I thoroughly enjoyed the first film and I look forward to the second. I do think it's a bit premature however, to get cracking on a third film, before we see if fans and critics alike enjoy the sequel. No actors are signed on for the third yet, but I imagine we'll know a lot more once the second one opens.
You can check out the trailer for the second film below:
