Mirren the assassin?

11.03.2009

When you hear the name Helen Mirren, you probably think more of royalty or authority figures than someone who can snap bones with Bourne-style efficiency.

But the Oscar-winning actress is getting her knuckles dirty right alongside Bruce Willis in the action flick RED, playing "an old associate with a lethal set of skills."

The story revolves around a former CIA operative (Willis) enjoying his retirement, until the new company director (Morgan Freeman) discovers his secrets and decides to make it permanent by dispatching a younger high-tech black-ops crew.

The Summit movie is based on a Warren Ellis comic series, and is being directed by Robert Schwenke (FLIGHTPLAN, THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE).

Extra Tidbit: Mirren was invested as Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2003 -- the same year she dropped her dress in CALENDAR GIRLS.
