Summit Scripting RED Sequel

One of the most surprisingly fulfilling actions of last year was Summit Entertainment's "RED." A movie that I thought would be just another ho-hum action fiesta that ended up being a highly entertaining romp filled with a cast of aged thespians. I wasn't the only one who enjoyed the AARP filled action and as a result Summit Entertainment has opted to hire screenwriters for a second installment of aged shenanigans. Check out the full report below...

Yesterday Collider broke word that Summit had gone back to RED scribes Jon and Erich Hoeber to pen a sequel. This morning Deadline confirmed the report with Summit. While a sequel has not been green-lit, it is safe to say we will see a second adventure in the RED universe by 2012.

The biggest lynchpin to the success of a RED sequel is Summit bringing back the talented group of actors for a the sequel. The Hoeber brothers did a bang up job on the original script so the water is hot for them to return with just as a fresh and innovative sequel, but I'm sure the duo will have no problem. Especially knowing who they will potentially be writing for.
