While we recently learned that Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot would be taking the helm of Red 2 (the sequel to the 2010 hit Red), we still didn't know which original cast members would be returning for the follow-up. Well Summit has made one big casting announcement today, confirming that Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, and Mary-Louise Parker will be reprising their roles from the first film alongside newcomers Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung-Hun Lee.
The story for the follow-up will find the team of retired CIA operatives taking on a new set of enemies all across Europe. The nature of Zeta-Jones' role isn't disclosed, but I wouldn't be surprised if she plays the film's villain. I have yet to see Red, but I love the hell out of Galaxy Quest and this is certainly an impressive cast so I'm definitely going to have to rectify that sooner rather than later.
RED 2 press release:
Los Angeles, CA May 10, 2012 – Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE® company, has cast Oscar® winner Catherine Zeta-Jones (ROCK OF AGES, CHICAGO) and Byung-Hun Lee (G.I. JOE: RETALIATION, G.I. JOE: RISE OF THE COBRA) in RED 2, the sequel to the action-comedy hit RED. The sequel also reunites Bruce Willis (THE EXPENDABLES, DIE HARD), John Malkovich (IN THE LINE OF FIRE, BURN AFTER READING), Mary-Louise Parker (WEEDS, R.I.P.D.), and Oscar winner Helen Mirren (THE QUEEN). Lionsgate International will sell the film at the upcoming Cannes film market.
The project is being directed by Dean Parisot from a screenplay by Erich and Jon Hoeber, who wrote the script for the studios' first installment of the Golden Globe® nominated film. Lorenzo DiBonaventura and Mark Vahradian will produce the film via their DiBonaventura Pictures banner.
RED 2 brings back the team of retired CIA operatives as they use their old-school style to take on a new set of enemies all across Europe. Malkovich, Parker, and Zeta-Jones are represented by WME. Willis, Mirren, and Lee are represented by CAA. Malkovich is represented by Principato-Young Entertainment.

Catherine Zeta-Jones And 'G.I. Joe' Star Byung Hun-Lee Join Original Cast For 'Red 2'
NEWS BY OLIVER LYTTELTON indiewire.com
2010's "Red" was, on paper, one of the least likely sleeper hits of the last few years: an actioner where the average age of the cast was over 60 (and that was even allowing for relative younglings Karl Urban and Mary-Louise Parker). And yet the film, based on Warren Ellis' comic book, directed by Robert Schwentke and starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren, took a very solid $200 million worldwide on a budget that didn't break the bank, and Summit have been moving ahead with a sequel ever since.
Original writer Jon and Erich Hoeber were brought back, "Galaxy Quest" and "Justified" director Dean Parisot was hired to replace Schwentke, and things have been moving along swimmingly, with a release date in August of 2013 announced a while back. And now Deadline have confirmed that the surviving members of the original principle cast will be returning, and they're bringing along a few new recruits.
The site says that Willis, Mirren, Parker and John Malkovich (who played an acid-casualty spy) have all signed on the dotted line to reprise their roles in the sequel, and will be joined by Catherine Zeta-Jones and Korean megastar Byung Hun-Lee ("G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra" and its upcoming sequel, and "I Saw The Devil"). There's no exact details on the plot, other than that it'll involve the aged espionage agents fighting their way across Europe.
