Throughout this entire week, I’ve been coming to you with a series of dispatches from my visit to the set of Red, the upcoming action-comedy release from Summit Entertainment starring Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren. Based on a Warren Ellis comic, the story follows a group of former CIA assassins who are being targeted by the very Agency to which they dedicated their lives. It’s a flick that looks like a bit of fun — especially after seeing the first trailer (embedded after the jump). Along with my dispatches about each character, Summit released character posters for each of the main players. In case you missed them, I’ve assembled them into a neat little gallery, which you will find right after the jump.
Frank (Bruce Willis), Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich) and Victoria (Helen Mirren) used to be the CIA’s top agents – but the secrets they know just made them the Agency’s top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive. To stop the operation, the team embarks on an impossible, cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history.
