First Trailer for RED Starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, and John Malkovich

Summit has debuted the first trailer for Red, an adaptation of the Warren Ellis comic which tells the story of a former black-ops CIA agent currently targeted by a hi-tech assassin.  The film is toplined by an all-star cast of Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker, Morgan Freeman, and John Malkovich.  Hit the jump for the trailer.

The trailer is all sorts of fun, in a Kick-Ass kind of way.  Looking over director Robert Schwentke’s resume: Flightplan, The Time Traveller’s Wife… hmm.  I am now even more intrigued.

Here’s a plot synopsis:

Red is the story of Frank Moses (Willis), a former black-ops CIA agent, who is now living a quiet life.  That is until the day a hi-tech assassin shows up intent on killing him.  With his identity compromised and the life of the woman he cares for, Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker), endangered, Frank reassembles his old team (Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren) in a last ditch effort to survive.  Also in the cast are Karl Urban, Brian Cox, Richard Dreyfuss, Ernest Borgnine, Julian McMahon, James Remar and Rebecca Pidgeon.

Steve got a chance to visit the New Orleans set: you can check out his preview piece, which includes an interview with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, here.
