RED 2 is In the Works. REDDER, Maybe? ORANGE Would Be Next on the Spectrum… Hmm.

As announced by Summit Entertainment yesterday, Erich and Jon Hoeber, the writers behind the screenplay of RED, are at work scripting a second installment of the story.  No word yet on what the sequel will entail, plot-wise, but anyone who saw the first movie will be aware that it sets up for a sequel.

A sequel that has John Malkovich in drag.

According to MTV, RED quietly made a nice haul at the box office, thus proving its sequelability.  The movie itself was good fun, with a bunch of actors in it who are just a pleasure to watch.  Maybe with a sequel they could expand the cast even more.  Liam Neeson, for example.  Add in Harrison Ford and you’re bridging two generations of Star Wars movies, and making RED a essential part of the vocabulary of any Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon player.

And it also hopefully pays out a nice check to Warren Ellis, writer of the comic RED, on which the movie was loosely based… because he is awesome.
