Warren Ellis, the comic book writer that brought us the only promising look at G.I Joe in the former of GI Joe Resolute shorts will have one of his graphic novel RED adpated to film.
John C. Reilly and Mary Louise Parker have signed on co-star with Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman in the upcoming action flick RED. Based on the Warren Ellis comic, the film will star Willis as a former black-ops agent who must deal with a younger crop of assassins who show up to kill him. Reilly will play a fellow former agent who is paranoid that everyone is trying to kill him. Parker will play Willis’ love interest, who becomes mixed up in the assassination attempts.
Warren Ellis is among my favourite comic writers so I have all faith in him, however I haven’t read Red yet.
But with Willis, Freeman and Parker, I really look forward to it. However I don’t always count John C Reilly as an instant win, but I am interested to see how he will fit into this.
