RED Rumours

May 1st, 2009 | Work

According to The Hollywood Reporter and other locations — I’m going to throw the traffic to comics news site Newsarama — Bruce Willis and Richard Donner are apparently circling the film adaption of RED, the graphic novelette I did with artist Cully Hamner some years ago.

I have no further knowledge of this. But I’m all right with Bruce Willis, actually. Funny thing is that people are talking about this being part of a "second act" for him at age 54, but I always imagined the protagonist of RED as being in his early sixties…

  1. This bit caught my eye:

    > Also, keeping Red in the genre “family,” Richard Donner is one of the directors on the shortlist for the film.”

    Family?

    Family?

  3. Actually, I think Willis is almost perfect. And you could do a lot worse than Donner.

  4. congrats so far and i hope this pans out for you. personally, i am holding my breath for “Ocean” but any adaption of your material would be a major score.

  5. Bully for you! Potential win there.

  6. Richard Donner is part of the “genre family.” He’s done a few comic book movies before ;)

  7. Good for you and Cully — I hope.

  8. I thought Pulp Fiction was the beginning of Bruce Willis’ second act. Or was it The Sixth Sense? No, wait, it was Sin City … oh fuck it.

    Good actor though.

  9. Love “RED.” I’ve been telling people beyond the point of them being sick of hearing it, that “RED” must be a movie. Fingers crossed.

  10. The movie sequel will be called “REDder.”

  11. […] Uncle Warren tells us that Bruce Willis is in talks to star in Red with Richard Donner a possibility to helm. This actually sounds promising and makes me feel better after my initial, but warranted after years of experience, reaction. […]

  12. I just read about this in today’s NY Daily News. And of course the write up didn’t give props to either Cully or Warren, let alone mention the story was based on their comic miniseries. Can’t wait for this to hit the screens fast enough.
