Red proved that people like to watch slightly older people kick ass, and as a result we’re getting Red 2, which already has Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich, and now has another veteran of the screen in its sights, as Deadline reports that Anthony Hopkins is in talks to play a villain in the movie.
If everything works out he’d play a scheming baddie called Edward Bailey in the action comedy. There is a potential problem though, as with Red 2 due to shoot later this summer, it could clash with his duties as Odin in Thor 2. That would of course take priority, but if they can work out timings he’ll be in Red 2 as well.
As well as the old guys, Mary Louise Parker is also returning, along with newcomers Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung-hun Lee. Dead Parisot is set to direct.
