The impressive cast of Red is growing. Mania reports that Karl Urban is the latest actor to join the cast, in the mysterious role of "Cooper." All other details of the character are unknown.
Urban joins the likes of Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John C. Reilly, and Mary-Louise Parker in a story about a retired CIA agent (Willis) targeted by a mysterious assassin. The story also confirms an earlier report that Julian McMahon will play the Vice-President of the United States and that Richard Dreyfuss and Ernest Borgnine are officially in the cast.
The adaptation of Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's comic book starts shooting in January, with direction from Robert Schwentke using a script by Erich and Jon Hoeber (Whiteout). The recently revised release date has Red scheduled to open on October 22, 2010.
