The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard – August 20th, 2021 (Post-Production)
The Hitman’s Bodyguard became an unlikely hit when it premiered in 2017. While it was met with tepid reviews, it became a box office hit, earning a crowd in no small part thanks to the high energy chemistry shared between Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. Thus, a sequel is on its way.
The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard once again stars Jackson, Reynolds, and Salma Hayek, as well as Frank Grillo, Richard E. Grant, Antonio Banderas, and Morgan Freeman. The sequel was filmed last year and it was expected to hit theaters on August 28th, but COVID-19 prevented the studio from making that release date happen. Now, it’s set to be released on August 20th, 2021, a week shy of a year later. That’s a long while to wait, though with theaters in an unsure state right now, it’s an understandable one.
