Bruce Willis's Directorial Debut Shooting in October

Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis will be making his directorial debut on an indie film titled Three Stories About Joan. The psychological drama follows a young woman at three points in her life and the family tragedies that cause her to lose her grip on reality. Apparently the story involves her "faith in a love borne out of need, destroyed by a madness, and restored by a ghost." A ghost? Yes indeed. Willis has cast the lovely Camilla Belle as the lead in the film and will also star as her father. Shooting will start in early October in Shreveport, Louisiana under the production of Willis Brothers Films, which as you can assume, is the company run by Bruce and his brother David. The budget is expected to between $10 and $25 million.

The screenplay for Three Stories About Joan was written by newcomers Christopher Alexander and Sam Applebaum. In addition to Belle and Willis, both Owen Wilson and Kieran Culkin will star in the film as well. It sounds like too much of a quirky story to actually turn out any good, but I don't know enough about all the details to really say. I'm more concerned about Willis' directing abilities than I am about the script. I'm sure this is going to be a big festival film next year, but I'm already worried that Willis won't be as good at directing as he is at acting. For some odd reason he doesn't feel like the kind of guy who knows how to work great behind-the-scenes, but then again, I haven't ever met him. I surely hope I'm wrong!

I had a weird feeling he would direct a film someday. Guess it is "someday". Good luck, Mr. Willis. 😀

If you watch the special features on the 12 Monkeys dvd, you can see Willis spending a lot of time with Terry Gilliam behind the scenes. To me, he seemed very interested in understanding the directorial stuff. Alex, "...his two brother David." ??? It only takes a minute to edit, dude.
