Studio executives at Summit Entertainment are preparing to begin production on a follow-up to the film and they’re hoping to add The Silence of the Lambs star to the line-up. If he accepts, Hopkins will play a villainous scientist locked up in a mental asylum.
Nevertheless, Hopkins will only be able to sign on for the role if the shooting schedule doesn’t clash with his commitments to the Thor franchise – the Marvel comics sequel, in which he plays the ancient superhero’s father, is due for release in November, 2013.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and South Korean actor Byung-hun Lee have already been added to the cast of Red 2, which is slated to hit movie theatres in the summer of 2013
On a separate note, I think BH has signed an exclusive endorsement for a new outdoor sport apparel …. Let’s wait for the official news to come 🙂
