Legends Unite! Samuel L. Jackson And Morgan Freeman Will Both Star In This Upcoming Film

Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds are teaming up once again for The Hitman's Bodyguard sequel. This time, however, Morgan Freeman's joining the fray.

According to Deadline, Freeman is officially a part of the cast of The Hitman's Bodyguard sequel. Patrick Hughes will once again direct with the sequel's script written by Tom O'Connor. Salma Hayek will round out the main cast, reprising her role from the first film.

There's no word on what Freeman's role will be, but the sequel's synopsis is that Reynolds, Jackson and Hayek's characters join forces on a mission on Italy's Amalfi Coast.

News of the sequel was announced last May at Cannes.
