Bruce Willis, Paul Walker & 50 Cent Unite for Heist Film 'Set Up'

Willis / Walker / 50 Cent

Though he's starred in such acclaimed films as The Sixth Sense and action favorites like the Die Hard franchise and The Fifth Element, as of late, the work of actor Bruce Willis has been hit or miss. However, it's still a little disappointing to report that the big name action star is attached to a new heist film with some truly underwhelming talent. Variety reports Willis will star opposite rapper-turned-actor Curits "50 Cent" Jackson and mannequin-turned-actor Paul Walker for Set Up, an action-driven heist flick written and directed by Mike Gunther which follows a group of friends who are catapulted into the middle of a diamond heist that turns deadly.

While a collaboration between Willis and 50 Cent seems strange, apparently the rapper's production is producing one of Willis' forthcoming projects, the action flick Catch .44, so the collaboration just came about naturally. Though Gunther hasn't directed a major motion picture, he's a stuntman and coordinator who has worked on big budget blockbusters like Live Free or Die Hard and The Matrix Revolutions. For now, I'm not really interested in this new project from Lionsgate, and the talent around Willis leaves quite a lot to be desired. What do you guys think?

    Willis has left a lot to be desired in recent years -- ie Cop Out. There's a reason Paul Walker isn't in more movies. I won't say anything about 50 cuz I don't wanna get shot. That being said, I'm game for this movie! The movie idea sounds so new and refreshing 😉

    @ Ethan... Paul Walker is not a mannequin, and never was. Hayden Christensen sure, but not the PW. He is a buster.
