Hoeber Talks RED

Screenwriter Erich Hoeber on the film version of RED over at Cinefools:

BG: It seems Red is gaining momentum, is the script finished for the film? and how would you describe the script you've written?

EH: The script is done and we may start production pretty soon. Summit just hired a fantastic director, Robert Schwentke - who most recently did The Time Traveller's Wife - and we're trying to round out the cast. Red is an action comedy with a lot of really meaty character parts and a lot of heart. The tone's a bit like Butch and Sundance. Both dramatic and comedic at the same time.

BG: It's been announced that Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman have signed on to star in the film do they fit the characters you've written?

EH: They're really perfect. And the studio's making offers to other actors of that caliber, so there may be more big announcements soon.

So did he read the comic or did he assume that the movie was based on the color red and open for intense reinterpertation?
