Though the cameras have yet to even begin rolling, director Dean Parisot and his Red 2 marketing team wants to make sure we know that the sequel is coming. But with no footage to show, they’ve had to resort to a teaser poster, which you can take a gander at below.
Red 2 features the return of Bruce Willis’ retired-but-still dangerous operative Frank Moses, along with pals Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich), Victoria (Helen Mirren) and sort-of girlfriend Sarah Ross (Mary-Louise Parker).
This time around, the aging heroes must deal with the threat of new enemies in Europe, which requires them to team back up. Fresh faces (well, sort of) this time around include Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Neal McDonough and Byung-hun Lee.
The 2010 movie’s writers Erich and Jon Hoeber have cranked out the sequel’s script, and it should be shooting either later this year or early next. Whenever it happens, Red 2 will need to be ready for an August 2013 release.
