MoviePass: ‘Red 2’ Director In Talks To Direct ‘Houdini’
Deadline: Summit Entertainment has begun early negotiations with Dean Parisot to direct Houdini. The filmmaker and studio collaborated on next month’s comic book movie sequel RED 2, with Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren reprise their roles as retired black ops agents from the sleeper action-comedy hit RED.
Summit is pleased with Parisot’s upcoming installment in the “Old-Timers with Guns” franchise and thus, wants him to make Houdini. Parisot’s resume as director includes the beloved Star Trek-riff action-comedy Galaxy Quest and the (not-so-popular) Jim Carrey laughfest Fun with Dick and Jane, in addition to episodes on TV shows ranging from the comedy Monk to the gritty neo-western Justified.
