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.

I can only imagine that would have to be the plot of the movie, right? Someone guesses the positioning of a ship, it’s sunk, then someone cries out in agony, “You sunk my battleship!” Give the trailer a watch, then we’ll decide.
Honestly, I think my movie sounds better. In what looks like a film created at the altar of Bay, Battleship is about a hotshot naval officer serving under Liam Neeson, who also happens to be said hotshot’s girlfriend’s daddy. Uh-oh, tension! When out on a routine exercise they spy a half-submerged craft in the ocean, which turns out to be what, a Transformer? I’m kind of confused. We then have an ariel shot I’m guessing is supposed to give us the connection to the classic Milton Bradley no Hasbro board game, as well as the alien? ship firing some kind of peg missile. And why is Eric Northman there? Surely vampires can’t serve in the U.S. Navy.
I feel like this movie’s a stretch, but I’m interested to see what screen writers Jon and Erich Hoeber managed to make of it. Battleship is directed by Peter Berg and stars Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Liam Neeson, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna (yes, for realz, the singer), Josh Pence, Jesse Plemons and Peter MacNicol. It’s set to open May 18th.
