Did you guys like RED 2? Oh it's not out yet, well who cares?? Get ready for RED 3 anyways!!!
Hey Yo! Draven here.
With RED 2 not even out until July 19th, this is a little unexpected. THR is exclusively reporting that Summit has already begun development on RED 3, by hiring Jon and Erich Hoeber to write the screenplay.
The Hoeber brothers wrote both RED films (and last summer’s BATTLESHIP), so it’s nice to see continuity. I wasn’t the biggest fan of RED. It is probably something I won’t ever get the itch to re-watch but I found it enjoyable for what it was. It did gross almost $200 million worldwide and didn’t have a huge budget so we can see why Summit is trying to turn this into a successful franchise.
We have been hearing the buzz on RED 2 is really good and THR confirms that in their report by saying, “It also helps that sources say Summit has been supremely encouraged by Red 2's high test scores.” Summit obviously is excited for something if they are this sure RED 2 will be successful this summer.
No cast has been signed yet but Summit wants to begin production on RED 3 as early as the beginning of 2014. I doubt Bruce Willis will say no to this, as RED 2 is one of four sequels he is in this year, and he has shown no signs of slowing down. The other original surviving cast members might not be a sure thing with such a quick turnaround but that is just speculation. I still expect this thing to begin production when Summit wants it to.
We should be hearing some more announcements soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime let me know what you guys think of this news. Were you fans of the original RED? Are you excited for RED 2? Any thoughts on the Hoeber brothers as writers, specifically?
