Summit sees ‘Red’

Oct. 22 release date set for Willis spy thriller

Summit Entertainment started laying the ground work for a “Red” sequel, returning to the scripting team of Jon and Erich Hoeber.

A studio spokesman confirmed the attachment Monday while noting that Summit hasn’t yet greenlit a second “Red,” which grossed $90 million domestically following its October release. Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren starred as former CIA agents who are classified as “Red” — retired, extremely dangerous.

The Hoeber siblings adapted the Warren Ellis’ comic book for DC. They’re also the screenwriters on Universal’s tentpole “Battleship,” directed by Peter Berg.

The Hoebers are repped by Verne and Cheng Caplan Co.
