Images of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bruce Willis on the set of Red 2 have found their way online. According to Comic Book Movie, another batch of photos featuring David Thewlis, John Malkovich, and Mary-Louise Parker have also been making the rounds on the internet.
The website explains that Catherine Zeta-Jones will portray a double agent in the upcoming sequel while David Thewlis will tackle the role of an information dealer known as “The Frog.” Bruce Willis, meanwhile, will reprise his role as former black-ops agent Frank Moses. Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot has stepped behind the camera for the follow-up.
The Daily Mail managed to get shots of Bruce Willis hanging out with his stunt double on the set of Red 2. If the sequel is anything like the original installment, the characters will find themselves in the middle of several action-packed set pieces. In order to make these scenes happen, someone has to make sure the Die Hard star is out of harm’s way. After all, they may need him for the next sequel.
The shots of David Thewlis give the movie’s fans an opportunity to see how some of the action sequences are brought to life. Instead of sticking the Harry Potter alum on a motorcycle and sending him into the fray, the filmmakers have developed a nifty mock-up designed to keep the actor as safe as possible.
For those who missed the first film, Red tells the story of Frank Moses, a former black-ops agent who finds himself the target of an assassin who will stop at nothing to end the guy’s life. In order to figure out who’s behind these violent attacks, Moses gets in touch with his old team, an eccentric band of psychopaths and trained killers.
Red 2 — which also stars Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, and Neal McDonough — is slated to arrive in North American theaters on August 2, 2013. You can check out all of the images featuring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bruce Willis by paying a visit to both the Daily Mail and Comic Book Movie.
