Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson are reunited for a sequel to 2017’s The Hitman’s Bodyguard. This time round they’re joined by Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas and if the teaser trailer is anything to go by it’ll be a nice bit of fun escapism. We probably need it!
In this instalment of the franchise Reynolds’s character Michael Bryce is trying to take time off from being a bodyguard when he’s pulled into action by Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek).
The full plot details haven’t been released, but it sounds like Reynolds has his hands full with Hayek and Jackson who are in turn under threat from the film’s villain played by Antonio Banderas. In many respects it sounds a lot like a tongue in cheek take on the international thriller genre.
The full cast roster also includes Morgan Freeman, Frank Grillo and Richard E. Grant.
The film is currently slated to go on general release on June 23rd in the UK and Ireland.
