‘Red 2’ recruits David Thewlis

Thesp joins cast of Summit-distributed sequel

David Thewlis has rounded out the cast of “Red 2.”

Thesp joins returning cast members Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich as well as Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung-hun Lee. Dean Parisot is on to direct.

In this installment, Willis and company’s search for a weapon of mass destruction begins by breaking out the man who created the weapon from an insane asylum.

Pic is being distributed by Summit Entertainment, a Lionsgate company.

Original “Red” scribes Jon and Erich Hoeber wrote the script, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce. Pic is set to start production this fall and will bow Aug. 2, 2013.

Erik Feig, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group’s president of production, will oversee the project for the studio along with Summit Entertainment’s president of production, Geoff Shaevitz

CAA-repped Thewlis was most recently seen in DreamWorks’ “War Horse.”
