We shared the first images of the Warner Brothers’ film The Losers a little over a month ago. Now, thanks to the power of Twitter, we have a new image from the set of the film. Actor Idris Elba (The Wire) tweeted the picture, which features himself, Columbus Short, Chris Evans, Óscar Jaenada and Jeffrey Dean Morgan looking appropriately bad-ass as they wait on the film’s Puerto Rican set.
The Losers, which also features Star Trek‘s Zoe Saldana, revolves around an ex-CIA Black Ops team who seek revenge against the mysterious Max (played by Jason Patric), their former handler and the man who betrayed them. The film is based on the Eisner-nominated DC/Vertigo comic book series of the same name, which ran from 2003 to 2006.
Though we haven’t seen that many action photos from The Losers yet, you can be guaranteed there will be plenty of gunfire and explosions (exactly the kind of stuff that packs theaters) in the film. In fact, as the newly formed DC Entertainment works to map out its production schedule, I’d be willing to bet that The Losers will become one of the company’s surprise hits.
One stumbling block for The Losers could be the general public’s unfamiliarity with the original comic book series. On the other hand, the same could have been said for Wanted, and that film went on to gross more than $340 million worldwide.
What do you think? Are you excited to see The Losers?
The Losers, which is being directed by Sylvain White, is set to hit theaters on April 9th, 2010.
