Heat Vision reports that John C. Reilly and Mary-Louise Parker are in talks to join the cast of Red, Summit Entertainment’s adaptation of the Wildstorm/DC Comics miniseries being directed by Robert Schwentke.
The film is about 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.
Reilly would play a retired CIA agent who is paranoid that everyone is out to kill him.
Parker would play the romantic interest, a federal pension worker who becomes embroiled in the Willis character’s struggle to stay alive.
Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren already are on board for the film, being produced by Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian.
DC’s Gregory Noveck executive produces with Jake Myers. Jon and Erich Hoeber wrote the script.
