Set Visit

Helen Mirren in Red

You’re about to meet Victoria. If you’ve been reading my coverage from the set of Red, including yesterday’s piece about Bruce Willis and the debut of a new teaser poster, you’ll know who I’m talking about. Played by Helen Mirren, Victoria is a former wet works sniper who has since retired and bought a small town bed and breakfast. But when the Agency comes calling with a hit squad, all the comfort food and frilly tablecloths go out the window, leaving Victoria to defend herself not with a kitchen knife, but a 50 caliber machine gun. Sounds pretty rad, right? Read more after the jump.

“I’ve never been in a film with so many movie stars,” Bruce Willis said to us on our recent visit to the set of his upcoming action comedy Red. “I’ve never been in a film with all of these people in it that are all like the Yankees. They are the Yankees.” He’s speaking, of course, of the mega cast assembled for Red, an adaptation of the DC Comics property written by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner. It’s the subject of a series of articles that you’ll see this week as we begin to ramp up for Comic-Con. Bruce will be there, as will a great deal of this cast that includes Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Karl Urban, Richard Dreyfus, Brian Cox and Morgan Freeman. Today we take a look at what Willis had to say about his character, as well as a brand new character poster featuring him as former CIA killer Frank Moses.
