Red 2 doesn’t even start filming until the spring, but a teaser poster for the film has gone online. The first Red felt like an “almost” movie. It could have been great, and it had the right cast, but direct Robert Schwentke‘s action felt a little lethargic and the script never quite hit all of its jokes. Screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber are back to rewrite the script, and now Dean Parisot is in the director’s chair, so hopefully the sequel will be an improvement. The film will also bring back Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, and Helen Mirren plus throw in some valuable new additions like Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung-Hun Lee. There’s also the possibility that Anthony Hopkins and Neal McDonough might sign on, so there’s definitely a strong cast in the works for the sequel.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. Red 2 is set to open on August 2, 2013.
