Because of the confinement the release of HWB has been postponed to the summer of 2021. I’m kind of bummed because I can’t wait for you all to see it. Por la cuarentena, el estreno de Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, se movió al próximo verano. Que lastima porque muero de ganas de que lo vean. #HitmansWifesBodyguard @samuelljackson @vancityreynolds @imdb
Since she will be taking on a big role in this film, we can totally understand why she would be disappointed with the delay in release.

The ‘Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard’ takes us three years forward in time after the events that went down during the first film. According to the official synopsis of the film released by Lionsgate, the sequel is “Set on the Amalfi coast; the mismatched, high-octane trio are unwillingly pulled onto the side of the good guys as they battle to save Europe from a vengeful and powerful zealot with a dangerously over-developed sense of national pride.” Michael and Darius join forces with an Interpol agent to prevent a cyberattack in Europe.
We know for sure that Michael Bryce stays on good terms with Darius Kincaid and the duo will be seen going on a rescue mission to save Sonia Kincaid, as her life is under a great threat.
