UPDATED: There is some confusion and speculation about Bruce Willis’ involvement with this movie. Someone involved with Willis yesterday claimed that he would not appear in such a movie and that if you did not believe that to be so, then check his scheduling, because he is booked for something else. Well, pictures do not lie. Bruce Willis, in a car, atop a trailer, with Woody Allen directing. Apparently Willis either walked off the set or was fired, according to Collider. Or maybe both? In any case, it appears that an attempt by team Willis to defenestrate a Woody Allen movie he gave the finger to from his resume was thwarted by pictures of him actually on set.
Hey, all this hoopla reminds me on a story about John Cusack and Bruno. They were on the set of The Prince (a movie from the bowels of DTV hell) and Cusack accidentally (yeah, we believe you, John) martial arts-ed Bruce’s ass for real, punching him square in the face. Then, Willis raged hard.
PREVIOUS: Director Woody Allen is filming a new movie. And in that movie will appear Bruce Willis. I mean, the guy is kind of a central figure for our niche, so here is a look courtesy of ComingSoon of what Willis is going to look like in this movie.
There is no further information about what the movie is about at this point, or even what it’s called.
The cast also includes Jeannie Berlin (Inherent Vice), Blake Lively (Age of Adeline), Parker Posey, Corey Stoll (Ant-Man), and Ken Stott (The Hobbit Trilogy). The co-stars are Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect 1 & 2), Stephen Kunken (Still Alice), Sari Lennick (A Serious Man), and Paul Schneider (Water for Elephants).
Allen’s new film is produced by his long-time collaborators Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Edward Walson. Executive producers are Ronald L. Chez, Adam B. Stern and Allan Teh. Three-time Oscar-winning cinematographer Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now, Reds, The Last Emperor) will shoot the film, which shoots this month on location in New York and Los Angeles.
