With a new director in the form of Dean Parisot (Justified, The Good Wife), RED 2 has added even more actors to its impressive ensemble cast recently as everyone from Anthony Hopkins (Hannibal) to Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Byung-hun Lee (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) have signed up to join the returning cast members. This instalment will see the retired C.I.A. Agents travelling across Europe to take on an all-new threat and will hopefully improve upon the so-so first movie. As you can see from the Tweet below, the news has just broken that David Thewlis has now joined the cast of the sequel as 'The Frog'. Stay tuned for further details!

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter has now posted a full story about the casting following that Tweet, stating that 'The Frog' is, "an information dealer who got his name by poisoning the water supply at the Kremlin using a poisonous Amazonian frog."

The sequel to the action-comedy hit RED, which reunites our team of retired CIA operatives as they use their old-school style to take on a new set of enemies all across Europe.

RELEASE DATE: August 2nd, 2013.

His sex scene with Leonardo Dicaprio still haunts me to this day. Some things cannot be unseen.

I liked RED. I was under the impression that a lot of people did. Guess I was wrong.

RED was stupid fun.

This however is the worst piece of casting news since that waster Eccleston joined Thor 2.
