Production on the sequel The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard has begun. Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) revealed the news after sharing a photo of himself, Samuel L. Jackson (Captain Marvel) and Salma Hayek (The Hummingbird Project) on the set of the film through his Instagram.
The photo shows off a blood-splattered Reynolds as bodyguard Michael Bryce alongside Jackson’s Darius Kincaid and Hayek’s Sonia Kincaid.
Directed once again by Patrick Hughes, the sequel will see Reynolds’ bodyguard Michael Bryce enlisted by hitman Darius Kincaid (Jackson) and his wife Sonia (Hayek) to join them on a mission along the Amalfi Coast.
Also set to star in the film is Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as an interpol agent looking to prevent a cyber attack in Europe, along with Morgan Freeman (The Nutcracker and the Four Realms) who has been cast in an as-yet-unrevealed role.
