Catherine Zeta Jones joins Red

May 11th, 2012

Catherine Zeta Jones has signed up to the 'Red' sequel.

The Welsh actress will join Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Dame Helen Mirren and Mary Louise-Parker for the follow-up to the action movie, which is to be set in Europe.

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' star Byung-Hun Lee will also be taking a part in the picture.

Dean Parisot is directing the project - taking over from Robert Schwentke - which has been written by Jon and Erich Hoeber.

It is not known what role the Oscar-winning actress will be taking, but filming is set to start later this year ahead of an August 2013 release date.

'Red' took just shy of $200 million at the box office upon its release in 2010, on a budget of just $58 million.

Catherine has a number of new movies coming out this year, including a part in musical 'Rock of Ages' and gambling movie 'Lay the Favourite'.

She is currently filming Steven Soderbergh's 'The Bitter Pill'.
