Lionsgate has revealed the teaser trailer and poster for Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, the anticipated sequel opening in theaters on June 16, 2021. The film is the sequel to the 2017 hit comedy action-thriller The Hitman’s Bodyguard. Made for $30 million, the original grossed $176.6 million worldwide.
In Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, the world’s most lethal odd couple — bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) — are back on another life-threatening mission.
Still unlicensed and under scrutiny, Bryce is forced into action by Darius’s even more volatile wife, the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek).
As Bryce is driven over the edge by his two most dangerous protectees, the trio get in over their heads in a global plot and soon find that they are all that stand between Europe and a vengeful and powerful madman (Antonio Banderas).
Joining in the fun and deadly mayhem is Morgan Freeman as… well, you’ll have to see.
The cast also includes Frank Grillo, Caroline Goodall, Rebecca Front, Gabriella Wright, Alice McMillan, Kristofer Kamiyasu, Tom Hopper, Blake Ritson, and Richard E. Grant.
Directed by Patrick Hughes, Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard was written by Tom O’Connor and Phillip Murphy & Brandon Murphy from a story by O’Connor.
The action comedy was produced by Matthew O’Toole, Les Weldon, and Yariv Lerner.
Lionsgate and Millennium Media present, a Millennium Media/Nu Boyana Film Studios production, in association with Campbell Grobman Films, and in association with Film i Vâst and Filmgate Films.
