David Thewlis

Most audiences know David Thewlis for his turn as fan favorite character Professor Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter franchise, but the British actor is quite the character actor who has taken roles in films like The Big Lebowski, James and the Giant Peach, Kingdom of Heaven and War Horse most recently. Now Heat Vision has word he's joining up with another developing franchise as Lionsgate and Summit Entetainment have hired Thewlis for a supporting role in RED 2, the sequel to the 2010 action film about a group of retired special agents like Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich, put back into action.

Thewlis will play a character called The Frog, an information dealer who got his name by poisoning the water supply at the Kremlin using a poisonous Amazonian frog. The aforementioned retired agents are back in the mix, but Morgan Freeman is not returning this time. However, some new cast members like Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung-Hun Lee might make up for his absence. Dean Parisot is directing the sequel which starts shooting this fall in Montreal and hits theaters August 2nd, 2013.
