Red Trailer

Posted by Grey Tuesday, July 6, 2010

Why yes, more eccentric comic-to-movie adaptation inclining further to this side of Vertigo's "The Loser" than the usual superhero stuffs.

And I'm talking about "Red", the darkly endearing three-issue comic book mini-series published in 2003 and 2004 by WildStorm imprint, Homage Comics, created by writer Warren Ellis and artist Cully Hamner. For those interested in finding out what Ellis thought of the film treatment, check out his notes on the film right here. Like what Ellis mentioned, the book is at a mere 66 pages, therefore, you can easily expect more than a handful of "creative development" over the original story. For starters, the main protagonist (played by Willis, of course), Moses, gets his first name changed from Paul to Frank. And this Frank Moses gets to reassembles his old team (Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren) to fight back.

Here's the 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.

Summit has recently released the official trailer online, and it sure seems promising. Check it out right below.
