Warren Ellis on ‘Red’ sequel ‘Intesting to see where they go’

DenofGeek sat with “Red” creator Warren Ellis discussing various projects and spoke a bit about the planned “Red” sequel after the first film found box office success. (UPDATED with the new film’s movie poster below)

They don’t talk to me about that. I mean, I knew it was happening. I spoke to Lorenzo di Bonaventura a few weeks ago, so I knew Jon and Erich [Hoeber] were being commissioned.”

"Red" : John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Bruce Willis

Ellis doesn’t appear to know much and sounded like a fellow fan.

“I’m interested to see what they do, because the second one isn’t going anywhere near the original source material. So, it’s not going to have anything to do with anything I wrote, so I’m as interested, I think, as any member of the audience, to find out where they take those characters next…And of course, the next hurdle is taking that script out to the original cast and seeing if they still want to play.”

Ellis joked about his career change due to the success of the first film: “[Laughs] None at all!”

Fans should expect the all-star cast to return: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren and Brian Cox.
