Warren Ellis’s graphic novel RED will be making its way to the big screen this October, and with a star-studded cast including Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, and John Malkovich, how can it go wrong?
Below is the official synopsis.
Screenplay by: Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber
Directed by: Robert Schwentke
Based on the cult D.C. Comics graphic novels by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, RED is an explosive action-comedy starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren.
Frank (Bruce Willis), Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich) and Victoria (Helen Mirren) used to be the CIA’s top agents – but the secrets they know just made them the Agency’s top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive. To stop the operation, the team embarks on an impossible, cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history.
If you find yourself at Comic Con this afternoon, you might want to check out Hall H around 2:00, for exclusive footage. For the rest of us, character photos will have to do. Summit entertainment has released half a dozen character posters…hmmm….and they all seem to be RED. (See them after the cut)
