Summit Considering Sequel to Graphic Novel Adaptation Red

Red (2010)

Collider is reporting that Summit Entertainment has hired Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber, the screenwriters who adapted Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's graphic novel Red, to write a sequel. The film, also titled Red, stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, and John Malkovich as retired spies who re-team to learn who has targeted them for elimination. The brothers also recently adapted the graphic novel Whiteout.

This is an interesting development and one we'll be sure to follow. Besides, where else can you find ever so proper Dame Helen Mirren wielding high-powered automatic weaponry!

If you haven't seen Red yet, you can meet the team below (via Yahoo! Movies). Red (DVD) and Red (Blu-ray disc) are available on January 25th, and may be pre-ordered.
