RED Sequel To Begin Filming Next Year, Says Helen Mirren

The Queen actress reveals that filming for the sequel to last year's hit action flick will begin filming next year, despite not officially having a director yet...

Speaking to The Jonathan Ross Show, Helen Mirren confirms that she'll return for the sequel to last year's hit action/comedy film RED, based on the DC comic of the same name. She says that filming begins next year, despite not having a director yet (the first film's director, Robert Schwentke, is busy filming R.I.P.D. right now, and may be still busy with the project by the time RED 2 begins production).

On Mirren’s part, the actress appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show last night and expressed her comittment to the role, saying:

We’re doing Red 2 next year.

This new film will have an entirely original storyline, drawn up by Jon and Erich Hoeber, who adapted Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner’s comic for the first picture. I expect they’ll have had some kind of conversation with Ellis, at least at the spitballing stage, though how involved he’d actually want to be is another question altogether.

Do you want to see a sequel to RED? If so, who do you want to see direct the sequel if Schwentke doesn't (which is likely)? Sound off your thoughts below in the usual place.
