Confirmed: Summit Entertainment making Red sequel

Summit Entertainment has confirmed what Collider reported just a little more than a week ago: The studio has hired “Red” scribes Erich and Jon Hoeber to write the screenplay to Red 2:

Summit has hired brothers Erich and Jon Hoeber, who wrote the script for the hit action movie, to return to the keyboard to pen a second instalment. Although there are no confirmed deals at this stage with the original film’s stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Summit is pulling the trigger for a second helping of over-the-hill special ops agents shoot-’em-up.

The complete press release is included after the jump.

Summit Pulls the Trigger on ‘RED’ Sequel

A sequel to RED is on. Summit has hired brothers Erich and Jon Hoeber, who wrote the script for the hit action movie, to return to the keyboard to pen a second instalment. Although there are no confirmed deals at this stage with the original film’s stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Summit is pulling the trigger for a second helping of over-the-hill special ops agents shoot-’em-up.

The movie, with a budget in the $60 million range, opened to $21 million in October and proved to have staying power, crossing the $90 million mark. It has made more than four times its opening, a rare feat in box-office performance. The movie also was nominated for Best Picture in the Comedy / Musical category at this year’s Golden Globe Awards.

In addition to writing Red, Erich and Jon Hoeber worked on Battleship, Universal’s big-budget adaptation of the Hasbro board game, and then came back to Summit to work on its Sam Worthington thriller Man on a Ledge. Ledge is currently shooting in New York.

RED is based on the cult D.C. Comics graphic novels by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamne, and is an explosive action comedy about a team of Retired and Extremely Dangerous CIA Operatives. The film released on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK on 14 February from Entertainment One.
