An all-star cast that includes Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and Mary-Louise Parker leads the highly anticipated sequel to 2010’s sleeper hit RED. RED 2 reunites Frank Moses’ unlikely team of elite CIA operatives for an international mission to track down a next-generation lethal device. Their operation is resisted by assassins, terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all determined to acquire the super weapon first.
Frank and his team travel to Paris, London and Moscow. Since they’re at a disadvantage against their well-armed foes, they have no choice but to rely on cunning wit, old-school tactics and each other to save the world as well as their own skins.
Joining Willis, Malkovich and Parker from the first film, actress Helen Mirren will reprise her role as Victoria. Additions to the cast include Anthony Hopkins in the villainous role of Edward Bailey and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Frank’s old flame Miranda Wood.
RED 2 is directed by Dean Parisot, best known for TV series like The Good Wife and Justified. Jon and Erich Hoeber, who adapted the first film from the graphic novels by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, also penned the screenplay for the sequel.
