For those who saw RED, you were treated to one of the best comedies of 2010. If you liked it as much as I did, then you will be happy to know that the stars of the movie are said to star in the sequel. No contracts are signed, so anything can happen. However, according to THR Willis, Freeman, Mirren, and Malkovich are all on board.
The one change, so far, is that a new director is going to be sitting behind the camera. Fun With Dick And Jane director Dean Parisot is in final negotiations to take over for Robert Schwentke. Filming is planned to start after Willis is done filming Die Hard 5. The word on the street is that due to the huge success of the first film (over $200 million worldwide), Summit is banking on this being the franchise that takes over for their wildly popular Twilight Saga which ends later this year.
Personally, I hope there are a few films in this franchise. Let us know what you think! What I love about a film like RED is that older actors in action roles are at the center of the story. The question is, how old is too old for actors to star in action franchises?
