Ryan Reynolds, Salma Hayek and Samuel L Jackson are reuniting for 'The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard'. The 'Dead Pool' actor took to Instagram to share a picture from the sets of their upcoming film on Tuesday. The three actors had also worked on the prequel 'The Hitman's Bodyguard' which was released in 2017.
Reynolds shared a picture of himself with blood splattered all over his face as he posed with Hayek and Jackson. He captioned the image, "Two Guys, A Girl and—OH MY GOD WHAT THE F***? Here we go again... #HitmansWifesBodyguard @salmahayek @samuelljackson."
Hayek also reposted the picture and she captioned it, "The family is back!!! #hitmansbodyguardwife #soniaisback @vancityreynolds @samuelljackson La familia esta de vuelta #hitmansbodyguardwife#soniaestaderegreso."
Jackson, on the other hand, posted a picture of the tattoo of branches and birds that his character Darius sports in the film. He captioned the picture on Instagram, "Heeeeee’s Baaaaaaack! Darius Kincaid in all his Profanely Lethal glory!! #hitmanswifesbodyguard #itsamurderofcrows."
'The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard' will be about Bryce (Reynolds) who will be joining Darius (Jackson) along with his wife Sonia (Hayek) for an adventure on the Amalfi Coast.
The sequel to the 2017 film was announced in May 2018 with the title 'The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard'. The film will be directed by Patrick Hughes who has also worked on the first film. The sequel has a screenplay by Tom O’Connor. The film will also reportedly see Morgan Freeman join Reynolds and Jackson.
The first film featured great repartee between Reynolds and Jackson and was filled to the brim with wit which resulted in the film earning great numbers at the box office. The sequel is expected to release in 2019, however, an official release date has not been shared as of now.
