The Chinese film industry continues to grow (along with their islands, military and such) and the China Film Group, along with private investors, have wooed Bruce Willis to appear in ‘The Bombing’ (they couldn’t come up with a better title?).
The movie covers a dramatic recreation of the Chinese population’s abiding endurance during the more than five years that Japan bombed the city of Chongqing, beginning in 1938.
It’s scheduled to be in production through August and to premiere as soon as the end of the year. The rapid schedule is designed to have the release roughly coincide with 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Sources put the budget at $90 million, making it one of the most expensive Chinese films ever.
Willis however will shoot for only eight days.
