If they can't get all three of them then they can just keep it. The Hitman's Bodyguard was one of my favorite movies from last year especially from the summer season. But it was def all Reynolds, Sam Jackson and Hayek. Would love to see all three back!

Hayek was the MVP of the first.  Get her back, let her cut loose again and give RR and SLJ good material and this will be a terrific sequel.

You can't make it without them, imo.

I enjoyed the first one, but I do kind of buy into the complaint that it feels like the script was adjusted to make for a Reynolds/Jackson buddy action comedy flick when it wasn't really conceived as one.

 

Here, they definitely have the opportunity to make the Reynolds/Jackson buddy element the groundwork of the movie with Hayek alongside them. For that, I'm interested in this.

It was apparently a very serious film but then Reynolds and Jackson got on board and the script changed a bit. It's why there was a shift in tone in the film that put some people off. 

 

I think if they can cater to Reynolds, Hayek, and Jackson then like @baumersaid it should be a great sequel

Villain wise, it'd be fun to have Gerard Butler or maybe cast him as a rival Hitman to Darius. 

 

 

I feel like that was suggested somewhere before. I think he'd fit right in here.

Why not just make Josh Brolin the villain?  Then you'd have Deadpool and Nick Fury fighting Cable.  :redcapes:

Probably by me in The Hitman's Bodyguard thread! He's quite good at comedy and would be a change from the overly serious roles he does.

I say we get Gerard Butler as a rival assassin turned ally and Laurence Fishburne as the villain. There's been a running gag between Jackson and Fishburne that fans confuse which movies are theirs, even though they look nothing alike (Jackson has gotten confused for playing Morpheus).

What if they got Wesley Snipes as the villain? :P

I don't know if it's true but I'm pretty sure I read that the main trio is coming back for this film. 

 

Now if they get Wesley Snipes for the villain

:ohmygod:

Especially considering his history with Reynolds. :P

 

They should still have Gerard Butler as a rival assassin to Jackson who has also given grief to Reynolds in the past.
