Red 2 isn’t even going to be released in theaters until July 19th, but Summit Entertainment isn’t going to wait around to see how it does before they start developing Red 3. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio already hired back Jon and Erich Hoeber to write a third installment of the franchise, as they are the same guys who wrote the first two films. Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian will be back to produce the film as well.
I loved the first film, and the sequel looks even better. It’s too early for story details, or to know if the entire cast will be back. The site also report that Summit has been looking for another franchise to launch since their Twilight movies ran their course, and may be looking at Red to serve that purpose. If the script is approved, production could begin as early as January 2014.
What do you think of the Red franchise?
