In case you are in the dark like I was, RED stands for “Retired Extremely Dangerous.” It’s kind of a fitting title for this coming of age ex-CIA action comedy vehicle. The panel of actors, consisting of Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds), Helen Mirren and Karl Urban (Star Trek), sat down with writer Warren Ellis and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers) to discuss all things RED.
Summit Entertainment’s RED is based on the DC Comics graphic novel of the same name.
Helen Mirren said she was attracted to this film because it was very different and as an actor, you want those roles.
Bruce Willis claims that everyone is funny in this film. He said that everyone had trouble keeping a straight face during shooting. He said making this film was like recess, not like work or a math class.
Bruce WIllis also admitted to like fighting with Star Trek‘s Karl Urban.
Helen did some gun training to prepare for her role. She said the hardest thing to do was to keep a straight face while firing a gun.
It was leaked that Richard Dreyfuss will appear in this film and that the cast was very excited to work with him in the 9th week.
The film’s final trailer was premiered for all in attendance Thursday afternoon in Hall H.
RED will be released nationwide October 15, 2010.
