Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: OMG I loved Red!!! I didnt even know they were making a second one, and with good old Lupin to boot. =D Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: I wonder if he is a good guy or a bad guy. He does great scenery-chewing bad guys.Avatar ImageGraymayne says: I think you mean Helen Mirren.Avatar Imagepaskunia says: 'Red 2' is scheduled for release next summer. The sequel, filmed partially in London, will also have Catherine Zeta Jones and Sir Anthony Hopkins in its cast. The director is Dean Parisot. With Helen Mirren returning as Victoria, that makes four Oscar winners, since director Parisot also won for Best Short Film over twenty years ago. Sounds good. Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Oh ho... "Le Grenouille" shades of NCIS. Red was fun, I hope this one does not disappoint!
