In addition to Bruce Willis, you can get a look at returning Red actors Mary-Louise Parker and Jon Malkovich, along with newcomer Anthony Hopkins. That's it for castmembers on display here, but the sequel does also feature the likes of Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, David Thewlis, Byung-hun Lee, and Neal McDonough.
The first Red was loosely based on the comic book written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Cully Hammer. Screenwriting duo Erich Hoeber and Jon Hoeber, who also recently wrote Battleship, are back on script duty for Red 2. The first film's director, Robert Schwentke, is busy with the Dark Horse adaptation R.I.P.D. starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. So in his stead, Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot is orchestrating the action for the sequel, which might mean that the comedic element will be more pronounced this time around.
We'll see when Red 2 arrives on August 2, 2013.
