Ryan Reynolds has announced that The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard has wrapped filming. In his new social post, he says: “That’s a wrap for me! Gonna miss kicking rocks with these two. Been down a lotta roads together.” You can view more behind-the-scenes photos from the production at the link above and at the Instagram accounts for Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek.
Lionsgate and Millennium Media’s The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is the sequel to the 2017 hit comedy action-thriller The Hitman’s Bodyguard.
The film also stars Antonio Banderas (Mask of Zorro, Interview with the Vampire, Evita and upcoming Laundromat and Dr. Dolittle), Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby, Invictus, Shawshank Redemption), Frank Grillo (The Purge franchise, Kingdom, Wheelman) and Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?, How to Get Ahead in Advertising), who makes his return as ‘Seifert’.
Set on the Amalfi coast, the mismatched, high-octane trio are unwillingly pulled onto the side of the good guys as they battle to save Europe from a vengeful and powerful zealot with a dangerously over-developed sense of national pride.
Director Patrick Hughes returns to wrangle the onscreen comic mayhem, with Terry Stacey taking on cinematography and Russell De Rozario as production designer. Filming will take place in London, Croatia and Italy. Lionsgate will release the film in the United States, UK, as well as Latin America.
Matt O’Toole and Les Weldon are producing for Millennium Media alongside Campbell Grobman Films. Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, Jeffrey Greenstein and Jonathan Yunger of Millennium along with Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell of Campbell Grobman serve as executive producers.
