In the Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard film, the world’s most lethal odd couple – bodyguard Michael Bryce and hitman Darius Kincaid – are back on another life-threatening mission. Still unlicensed and under scrutiny, Bryce is forced into action by Darius’s even more volatile wife, the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid. As Bryce is driven over the edge by his two most dangerous protectees, the trio gets in over their heads in a global plot and soon finds that they are all that stands between Europe and a vengeful and powerful madman. Joining in the fun and deadly mayhem is Morgan Freeman as… well, you’ll have to see.
The sequel sees the return of Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool franchise), Samuel L. Jackson (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Salma Hayek (Eternals), and Richard E. Grant (Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker), who are reprising their roles as Michael Bryce, Darius Kincaid, Sonia Kincaid, and Seifert, respectively.
Joining them are new cast members including Academy Award-winner Morgan Freeman, Antonio Banderas, Frank Grillo, Caroline Goodall, Rebecca Front, Gabriella Wright, Alice McMillan, Kristofer Kamiyasu, Tom Hopper, and Blake Ritson.
