Red 2, the sequel to 2010 action-comedy, has yet to be released, but Summit Entertainment must really be banking on its success…seeing as they have green lit the development of Red 3.
Red 2 won’t be released in theaters until mid-July, but Summit refuses to sit on their hands waiting for the money to roll in. The studio has already rehired Red and Red 2 writers Jon and Erich Hoeber to begin development of the third installment based off the comic mini-series written by Warren Ellis. Details are scarce, as they would be for a sequel not even written yet, but the return of Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, and Mary Louise-Parker is a sure bet.
Even with something this early in development, the studio has already made the first step in the right direction, bringing Jon and Erich back to write. The duo made the first Red a successful adaptation and Red 2 should continue the trend of former government agents and Bruce Willis being Bruce Willis.
Red 2 is in theaters everywhere July 19th, 2013.
