Just released late last night, is the trailer for the major motion picture adaptation for “Red” based on the Wildstorm mini-series by the same name. It stars Bruce Willis as Frank Moses (Paul, in the comics) who is a retired CIA operative, until a killer goes after him. Frank gets his old team together (Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, and Hellen Mirren) in retribution and to survive.
Blog@ talked to the artist of the series, Cully Hamner, to see what he had to say about the trailer. “Does this look like two tons of fun, or what? Sort of stunning that they could find this movie in the grim, nasty little comic Warren and I did, but when you really look, it’s all still there. It’s expanded, and the tone is different, but the theme has made it through. I can’t wait to see it with an audience.”
“Red” is slated for release in October.
