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.
