While speaking to the folks over at Collider, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura commented on the recent news of the upcoming film's new release date. "Always a good sign, I guess. But we haven’t previewed it to an audience yet, so until an audience votes, you know—as a filmmaker I think it’s really hard to tell you, “Wow, it’s the best movie I’ve ever made!” di Bonaventura also commented more on the film's cast and how he feels that the comedy is better in the second installment:

It’s really fun, it’s really good. I think the best measure of it is that all the cast members that we added—Byung Hun, Catherine Zeta Jones, Anthony Hopkins, David Thewlis—we added some really great actors and they really killed it. So I think we made, I say “a richer broth.” And Dean has a great sense of comedy and there’s just some laugh-out-loud funny stuff in it. I really love it, but you never know what it’s gonna feel like until you show it to an audience, which is next week.

RED 2 stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lee Byung-hun, Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren and is set to blast into theaters July 19th, 2013.

Would a producer ever say something bad about one of his movies anyway?
