"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
On the heels of yesterday’s Bruce Willis poster, Summit Entertainment has released one spotlighting Helen Mirren — “a high caliber woman” — from Red, the upcoming action film based on the WildStorm miniseries by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner. We should probably look forward to additional posters spotlighting Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and other cast members in the next few days.
Here’s the official synopsis for the Robert Schwentke-directed movie:
Red is the story of Frank Moses (Willis), a former black-ops CIA agent, who is now living a quiet life. That is until the day a hi-tech assassin shows up intent on killing him. With his identity compromised and the life of the woman he cares for, Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker), endangered, Frank reassembles his old team (Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren) in a last ditch effort to survive. Also in the cast are Karl Urban, Brian Cox, Richard Dreyfuss, Ernest Borgnine, Julian McMahon, James Remar and Rebecca Pidgeon.
Summit will bring the film’s director and stars to Comic-Con International on July 22. Red opens on Oct. 15.
