Bruce Willis has been incredibly sequel heavy, as he’s currently in production on the next installment of the Die Hard franchise which will be set in Russia. But while he’s overseas, he’ll likely get aquainted with the East as his next project Red 2 will be shooting in Europe. With Cannes this week, plenty of upcoming projects have received first look posters, and among the reveals Red 2 has now become one of them at the large international event. While simply a teaser, the one-sheet still finds a way to bring the entire gang.
StarkIndustries posted the preview poster, which is being showcased at Cannes this week, and shows off the entire cast together for this next European adventure. The biggest surprise is still that Morgan Freeman won’t be returning for the next installment, possibly meaning his character may be written off in the upcoming sequel. But given the harsh elder reality that was established in the first film, it’s likely that his character’s death is something the team must deal with (that is, if he is to die in the second film).
RED 2 brings back the team of retired CIA operatives as they use their old-school style to take on a new set of enemies all across Europe.
The film is scheduled to be released on August 2, 2013.
