Synopsis

Bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) are back. It seems from the trailer that Bryce, who is on sabbatical, is pushed by Darius’s wife Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek) to save Darius from the Mafia. It looks like Antonio Banderas is playing the bad guy. I am trying to figure out what Morgan Freeman will be doing in the film.


Ryan Reynolds on his character “Michael Bryce”

I just thought it was an interesting angle. He’s like taking a sabbatical from all and any violence. He will not touch a gun and will only carry pepper spray.

Samuel L. Jackson on his character “Darius Kincaid”

Wouldn’t we all like to be that guy? He’s married to his soul mate and has total job satisfaction. It’s fun to have on screen and I was spoiled by getting to work with Salma Hayek
He might be a murderer, but he’s one that’s got it all together and understands the importance of love and his relationship. He imparts a lot of that knowledge to Bryce.”

Salma Hayek “Sonia Kincaid” was hoping for a sequel

I love my character so very much.

She’s crazy, but not randomly crazy. She’s full of contradictions, but those contradictions make sense to me. One of the things I love about her is her thought process – it’s strange, but it’s consistent in its strangeness.

Sam, Ryan, and I immediately clicked.

As a trio, we have great, great chemistry, great energy – we play off of each other so well. I love Darius and Sonia’s story – it’s about staying in love, not just falling for the first time – and when you add Ryan to the mix, it becomes a strange, unexpected family of sorts.

Antonio Banderas “Aristotle Papdopolous” on why he loves playing villains

I like the idea of doing comedy and I like the idea of doing villains, because those bad guys can do literally anything, especially if the character is a sociopath. Papadopoulos is kind of a right-wing stand-in for anyone in Europe who is in disagreement with the European Union – he says he’s fighting for the rights of the Greek people, but I don’t think in real life they’d want a representative like him. Ultimately, his character is really just fighting for himself, but you get to learn that at one time he was a better man. Now he’s just very bitter, a very bad guy.
