The cast of Summit Entertainment's adaptation of the DC Comics miniseries, Red, is looking to grow with the (possible) additions of Julian McMahon, Ernest Borgnine, Richard Dreyfuss and Brian Cox. You may have noticed that a couple of the names are no strangers to adaptations.
Julian McMahon Ernest Borgnine, Richard Dreyfuss and Brian Cox in Talks for Red
To be directed by Robert Schwentke off a script by Jon and Erich Hoeber, Red is already boasting a cast that includes Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John C. Reilly and Mary Louise Parker.
The adaptation will tell the tale of a former black ops agent (Bruce Willis), now in retirement, who has to contend with younger, more high-tech assassins who show up to kill him. McMahon would play a Vice President with a dark side who is at the center of a shadow conspiracy. Borgnine will play the keeper of the CIA’s darkest records, while Dreyfuss will be a wealthy man who builds a fortune out of lucrative government contracts. Cox is a former Cold War spy and nemesis of Willis.
