RED - In Which Old Actors Play CIA Agents

Red, coming in October of this year, stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker, and many other awesome names that I'm too lazy to type.

Here! Copy and paste is the solution. Here's Summit Entertainment's press release:

Red is the story of Frank Moses (Willis), a former black-ops CIA agent, who is now living a quiet life. That is, until the day a hi-tech assassin shows up intent on killing him. With his identity compromised and the life of the woman he cares for, Sarah (Parker), endangered, Frank reassembles his old team (Freeman, Malkovich and Mirren) in a last ditch effort to survive. [Wikipedia]

Firstly, I still have a crush on Brucey, and second - I'll see anything with John Malkovich in it. And as a cherry on top we get to see The Queen Helen Mirren whoop some ass. Never thought I'd say that in a post. But you see, anything can happen in Hollywoodville.

Now, I will admit this has the potential for being a flippin' flop, a box office bomb, a stinking pile of embarassment for the actors involved, but I also think it has the potential to be enjoyable. Obviously they'll go for shock value - old people doing extreme stunts, and the standard "I'm getting too old for this" schtick, but meh - I'll see it.

Will you?

Helen Mirren in a movie with Bruce Willis? Isn't she a Dame yet? If she isn't, I think the Queen might have second thoughts about bestowing it on her after seeing this movie. - G
