A sequel to the movie Red, which was about a group of retired CIA agents forced back into action.
Red 2 was filmed in Moscow, Russia.
After the success of the earlier film in 2010, the late Ernest Borgnine (Oscar winner for Marty in 1956) always held out hope he’d be around to reprise his role as Henry the records keeper in the 2013 sequel. When interviewed by Wild About Movies in 2011 for his role in the movie Night Club, (which was never released in theaters), he mentioned there was talk about it over the years and made one request to the producers — “I told them if they do it, I want to carry a gun this time.”
Sadly, Ernest Borgnine died at the age of 95, in July 2012, before filming of Red 2 commenced.
Originally scheduled for release on August 2, Summit pushed up the release date of Red 2 to the more lucrative July 19, 2013 date.
