Despite having Bruce Willis' name on top of the poster, 'Red' was something of a surprise hit back in 2010, mainly because it's not every day that a movie with a cast almost entirely comprised of senior citizens makes $186 million worldwide. With the sequel, appropriately titled 'Red 2,' set to being filming soon, another very cool actor is ready to join an already jam-packed cast: Neal McDonough, who you may remember as "Dum Dum" Dugan in 'Captain America: The First Avenger' and from the latest season of 'Justified.'
It looks like Sir Anthony Hopkins (he is a knight, after all), might be joining the cast of 'Red 2,' the shoot 'em up sequel to the 2010 film about aging assassins.
'Red’ was a pleasant surprise for Summit Entertainment. Sure, the cast was top notch. But do audiences really want to see Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Dame Helen Mirren wielding hand cannons as semi-retired Black Ops agents called back into action for one more mission? Turns out, they do. And now they’ll get even more.
