Bruce Willis Signs on to Lead Action Thriller 'Five Against a Bullet'

Bruce Willis

This year will see him moving from one end of the spectrum in the quirky Wes Anderson comedy Moonrise Kingdom all the way to over-the-stop action in G.I. Joe: Retaliation as the original G.I. Joe. And even though Bruce Willis is getting up there in the years (he turns 57-years old this month), that's not stopping him from continuing to kick ass. Not only does the future have A Good Day to Die Hard for the actor, but now Columbia Pictures has revealed in a press release (via Deadline) that he will lead the new action thriller Five Against a Bullet, a new project from Transformers and G.I. Joe producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

The film, scripted by Predators and The Three Musketeers screenwriter Alex Litvak, follows a Mexican politician who, after his father is killed by a drug cartel, hires the five best bodyguards from around the world to protect him through a contentious election. It's doubtful that Willis is playing the Mexican politician (not without a bit more of a tan), so I'm betting he's playing one of the bodyguards. However, is the studio looking to snag other veteran action talent to play the other bodyguards, or younger talent, too? Maybe we're looking at another Expendables sort of reunion? Stay tuned.
