From the Hollywood Reporter:

Millennium Films is lining up further assassination hijinks with a sequel to its 2017 hit The Hitman's Bodyguard.

Titled The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, the film is being touted on posters in Cannes, alongside other major franchise titles "coming soon" from the action specialists, including Angel Has Fallen, The Expendables 4, Rambo V and Mechanic 3.

While no script is yet available, The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard is described in the Cannes market catalog as "The Good. The Bad. And the Batshit cray." Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are believed to be reprising their roles, although the casting hasn't been confirmed, while Patrick Hughes is thought to be returning to the director's chair. Tom O'Connor – who wrote the original and has one of Cannes' hot market titles in his Cold War spy thriller Ironbark, with Benedict Cumberbatch attached to star – is working on the follow-up.

The 2017 original — starring Reynolds and Jackson, alongside Gary Oldman and Salma Hayek — became a global smash, topping the U.S. box office for three straight weeks and earning an overall haul of $177 million from a $30 million budget.

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Adds Antonio Banderas & Richard E. Grant

Antonio Banderas has joined The Hitman’s Bodyguard sequel, with Oscar-nominated Can You Ever Forgive Me? star Richard E. Grant signing on to reprise his role in the Lionsgate/ Millennium Media follow-up to the hit 2017 comedy action-thriller. Production is currently underway on The Hitman, with stars Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek, as well as director Patrick Hughes, returning.

Morgan Freeman and Frank Grillo are also set to co-star in the film, which will shoot in London, Croatia and Italy.

Set on the Amalfi coast, the pic follows the mismatched, high-octane trio who are unwillingly pulled onto the side of the good guys as they battle to save Europe from a vengeful and powerful zealot with a dangerously over-developed sense of national pride.
