Summit Entertainment has set an Oct. 22, 2010 release date for espionage thriller Red, starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren.

According to Variety, Red is based on the WildStorm/DC comicbook, and follows a former black-ops CIA agent who lives a quiet life in retirement until the day a high-tech assassin shows up intent on killing him. With his secret identity compromised and his love interest in danger, he must reassemble his old team to figure out who is out to get them.

Robert Schwentke is directing the script by brothers Erich Hoeber and Jon Hoeber.

Red joins Lionsgate's Saw VII and Warner's drama Prisoners on the Oct. 22 date.
