By
RED 2 will centre around "outrageous" situations "played straight", its producer has said.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura has detailed the forthcoming sequel to the 2010 comic book action movie.

"I think we all loved the tone of it, but I don't think you can replicate tone," he told Collider. "You can come close, but we also have a different director so he's going to have a slightly different version of this thing.

"But, what we describe as tone for that movie is all the characters are playing it very straight while outrageous, fun s**t is going on. So we are maintaining that tone.

"[Director Dean Parisot] has a different sense of humour than Robert [Schwentke] so there's certain kinds of things that are a different funny, you know, different kinds of actions are happening. So it will be a different movie and it will be a new experience for everybody, but also our hope that we retain the thing that everybody digs about it because that's what we dug about it too."

Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren will return for the sequel alongside new additions including Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung-hun Lee and David Thewlis.

RED 2 is set in the US, London, Paris and Moscow. Filming began in September and will wrap in December.
