Sundance: Bruce Willis Takes Stand On Egypt’s Struggle For Democracy; Lends Weight To Docu ‘The People Demand’

Posted by admin with No Comments

Bruce Willis has signed to produce and narrate The People Demand, a feature documentary detailing the aspirations of protesters around the world in their pursuit of democracy, free speech and human rights. Willis will spearhead the film with Station 18 CEO and Lord of War exec producer Michael Mendelsohn and Michelle McElroy, exec director and Willis’s partner in the Bruce Willis Foundation. The story centers around the current crisis in Cairo, where pro-democracy activist and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee (for founding the April 6 Movement) Ahmed Maher was sentenced to three years of hard labor for violating harsh anti-protesting laws meant to quell dissent in a country where peaceful protests led to the ouster of two governments in three years. Maher and his co-defendants get their appeal tomorrow.

The documentary looks at the political motivations for suppressing free speech and democratic movements, while taking an unflinching look at leadership in international activist movements and the practice of street politics. Maher’s journey exemplifies this trajectory: as one of the leaders of Egypt’s January 25, 2011 Revolution he harnessed the power and imagination of Egyptians for a better future. But since that time he has also been at the epicenter of the messy work of democratic change as Egypt went from the dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak to the repression of SCAF to the polarizing figure of President Morsi. Hopes for democracy have been dashed, and heroes of reform are being punished by repressive laws meant to make future protests impossible. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by admin with No Comments

Summit Entertainment released the first “RED” movie, starring Bruce Willis, Karl Urban, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren, back in 2010. It went on to gross $200 million worldwide on a budget of $58 million.

Soon after, the studio announced that it’s working on a sequel, which is now set to hit theaters on July 19th. But even though “RED 2″ has yet to be released, Summit just announced that it has started work on “RED 3.”

While deals with the actors have yet to be made, screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber (RED, RED 2) have just been hired to begin writing the third installment. Production could start as early as January of 2014. [Source]

Bruce Willis Set For Action Thriller Expiration

Posted by admin with No Comments

As a poisoned hit man seeking a cure…

Given that Bruce Willis is best known for Die Hard, surely a film he stars in called Expiration can never end, because he dies hard. Geddit? Hello? Anyway, he has indeed signed on for the lead in hit man thriller Expiration.

No, it’s not the complicated struggle of a man battling his way to the shops to find a pint of milk still not past its best before date. Apparently the script, written by Broken City’s Brian Tucker, finds a hit man who discovers that he’s been poisoned and rushes to find a cure. That premise has shades of Crank, but we’re guessing it will be less demented than that.

According to Variety, the script is in the works now and has a planned start date of next March. What it doesn’t have yet is anyone to direct and tell Bruce who to shoot, but backers Emmett/Furla Films are ironing out that particular wrinkle even now.

Willis, who was last seen in A Good Day To Die Hard, will next grace our screens in Red 2 (August 2). He’s also been at work on Sin City 2 for Robert Rodriguez, which is due sometime late this year. [Source]

Bruce Willis Confirmed for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Posted by admin with No Comments

A handful of the cast members from Robert Rodriguez’s original Sin City are already confirmed to return for the sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, but the one noticeable absence has been Bruce Willis. In an interview with MTV, Rodriguez confirmed that Willis will return in the film.

“Bruce is back, so you’ll be seeing him.”

He also spoke about newcomer Jospeh Gordon-Levitt’s character and story in the film.

“It’s a new character. He plays a gambler, a very cocky gambler, who comes in and tries to beat the biggest villain in Sin City at his own game. The story’s called ‘The Long, Bad Night.’ He beats the wrong guy in a game and bad stuff happens to him.”

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will be presented in 3D when it’s released, and Rodriguez says it will blow our minds. Read the rest of this entry »

Bruce Willis finds director for fifth “Die Hard” film

Posted by admin with No Comments

A fifth “Die Hard” moved from rumor to reality with the move to hire John Moore as the sequel’s director. A mainstay at 20tht Century Fox, Moore has helmed such action films as “Behind Enemy Lines,” “Max Payne” and “Flight of the Phoenix,” as well as the studio’s “Omen” remake. Moore reportedly beat out “Fast Five” director Justin Lin and “Drive” helmer Nicolas Winding Refn for a shot at putting Bruce Willis’ iconic hero John McClane through the ringer.

So what do we know about the sequel up to this point? Well, McClane will be back in action after stopping a cyberterrorist in the Washington D.C. area for 2007’s “Live Free of Die Hard.” Because that sequel earned $383 million worldwide, a sequel seemed inevitable so long as Willis was willing to climb back into the battered role of his tireless law enforcement agent.
