Helen Mirren To Star In Comic Adap ‘Red’
Variety reports that Oscar-winner Helen Mirren has signed on to join Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman in Summit Entertainment’s adaptation of the Wildstorm/DC Comics Red.
The original miniseries follows a former black-ops agent (Willis) who must come out of retirement at the appeal of CIA director (Freeman) to thwart off the more high-tech, younger contenders. He turns to old associate Mirren for help.
Red will be pitched at the American Film Market. Filming has already begun in Toronto and Louisiana. The studio’s expected release date is November 19, 2010.
