CAST of The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard
Salma Hayek, Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson will be returning to their roles from the first movie, and Morgan Freeman and Antonio Banderas have been casted as new additions to the sequel.
In the first movie, Ryan Reynolds starred as a bodyguard who is tasked with protecting the life of his enemy, a hitman played by Jackson. However, four years after the events of 2017’s first film, Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard picks up the story of Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) as he begins a company-mandated sabbatical.
In the movie, he is tasked in being the bodyguard of the Jackson’s wife (played by Hayek) this time. We will see the trio going up against a psychopathic billionaire (Banderas), whose evil plan threatens to leave Europe in total chaos.
