Morgan Freeman sees Red

Morgan Freeman is in talks to star alongside Bruce Willis in Summit Entertainment's espionage thriller Red, based on the WildStorm/DC Comic written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Cully Hamner. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are producing along with DC Comics' Gregory Noveck overseeing. The screenplay was written by brothers Erich and Jon Hoeber, who also adapted Whiteout.

First published in 2003, Red tells the story of a former black-ops CIA agent now living a quiet life in retirement until the day a high-tech assassin shows up to kill him. With his secret identity compromised and his love interest in danger, the man must reassemble his old team to figure out who is out to get them. The Hoebers' take involves the idea of an older operative set in his ways having to contend with younger agents as well as modern technology.

It was a fantastic comic with some great set pieces. There is no news on what role Freeman will be playing, but he's a class actor (although his personal life seems a tad bizarre at the moment).
