The Golden Globe nomination for RED gave it a serious boost in commercial appeal. The Summit Entertainment production made over a $100 million at the worldwide box office, and the unexpected nod was just icing on the cake. Now according to Collider, we can expect more geriatric hijinks to ensue because the studio has rehired RED screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber to pen a sequel!
The site claims that Summit has commissioned the Hoebers to deliver another script for a RED sequel, but they haven’t given the project a green light. Everything is very much in the early stages. They also have to think about convincing the rest of the cast to sign on for another movie. The chemistry between the veteran actors was integral to the story.
If they do go through with a follow up, we think they should confirm as many people and green light the sequel immediately. The steam from the Golden Globes won’t last long. Plus, the actors have more than their fair share of projects to occupy their time. Isn’t Bruce Willis gearing up for Die Hard 5?
What do you think of RED 2? Does the film need a sequel?
