Variety reports that Morgan Freeman might be starring with Bruce Willis in Summit Entertainment's Red. The film is based on the WildStorm/DC Comic.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) is producing this film from a script by Erich and Jon Hoeber.

The comic was written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Cully Hamner.

It was a three-book series that was published in 2003 and 2004. It centers on a former black-ops CIA agent who is now living a quiet life in retirement. Things change when a high-tech assassin appears on the scene with every intention of killing him.
