Bruce Willis and 50 Cent

Back in November we heard that Bruce Willis would team-up with 50 Cent for a thriller called Set Up. Well the trailer recently came out, but it just looked so awful that we decided not to post it. Now Variety reports that for some reason, the two will team-up again for an indie drama called Fire with Fire. The story follows a fireman in the witness protection program. When he's threatened by the man he plans to testify against, he takes matters into his own hands to save the love of his life. In addition, Transformers franchise star Josh Duhamel is starring in the film from director David Barrett and writer Tom Conner.

Apparently the film is part of a 10-picture deal backed by $200 million with Lionsgate releasing the films. Set Up was one such film, and another Bruce Willis film, the adaptation of Lay the Favorite also starring Rebecca Hall, is part of the deal as well. Honestly, I don't know why Bruce Willis is wasting his time with films like this. I mean, when's the last time 50 Cent had a decent movie? It just seems like the actor who leads the Die Hard franchise and starred in The Sixth Sense could find better things to do. What do you think?

i think the company is hoping that 50 will see how Bruce acts and discover 'oooh your supposed to sound like that?' and make him better in acting....

I hope to see Tom Hanks and Bruce Willis do another movie together after only having one scene together in Bonfire of the Vanities (1990). They are both incredible actors and it would be amazing to see them bounce off each other in a film again.

Here's another burnt-out rapper (i.e: DMX, Busta Rhymes, xzibit) trying to make it on the big screen! I pretty much know how this will go.....!

Once again 50 cent gets to undeservedly take the screen with true/actual actors. I kinda despise the rap scene so maybe Im a little biased but 50 has been a wooden board in every role Ive seen him in.

Hahahaha!!!! OMG If Fifty Cent dares to presume he is if the calibre an actor as Willis, the drugs he be on are gooood!  We all know very well, that he buys his way into every movie he's in. Doesnt have to audition, just offers to pay for some of the costs or take no salary at all. Thats why he is only ever in low budget crap.

If it was Kid Rock, Justin Bieber, Eminem, or Justin Timberlake doing the EXACT same the 50 Cent and the other rappers have done, the response would be opposite. A complete 180. I wonder why?
