We've been closely following the development of the film adaptation of Red, the graphic novel thriller by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, from the casting of Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, and Helen Mirren to its scheduled release date of October 22nd, 2010. Now, The Hollywood Reporter blog Heat Vision is reporting that principal filming begins this week in Toronto with John Malkovich stepping in for John C. Reilly, who left the film last month.
About Red: Paul Moses (Bruce Willis) is a man with too much blood on his hands. For years, masquerading as a low-level clerk, he has traveled the world as a CIA agent, coldly and mercilessly killing America's enemies. Now, Moses is old, retired, and wants nothing more than to grow old and die in peace. But when a new, politically-appointed CIA director (Morgan Freeman) discovers Moses' existence and history, he gives the order for Moses' death, setting a chain of events in motion that nobody could have predicted.
Malkovich will play another retired CIA agent who joins Willis on his quest to find out who wants them dead.
