Morgan Freeman Joins Hitmans Bodyguard 2

Oscar winner Morgan Freeman has signed on to join the cast of “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” at Lionsgate and Millennium Films.

Ryan Reynolds’ Michael Bryce joins Darius (Samuel L. Jackson) and his wife Sonia (Salma Hayek) on a mission along the Amalfi Coast in the follow-up to the 2017 film “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” which grossed over $180 million worldwide.

Deadline announced the news today which confirmed an old report at Revenge of the Fans which indicated both Freeman and Antonio Banderas had joined the film.

Patrick Hughes is returning to direct from a script by Tom O’Connor and filming begins this month. Freeman will be seen later this year in the Gerard Butler-led “Angel Has Fallen”.
