Bruce Willis to star in “Five Against the Bullet”

While producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has been touting Bruce Willis as the potential star of the upcoming action film Five Against the Bullet for quite some time now, Columbia Pictures finally confirmed Willis’ involvement today. The story “centers on 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.” Willis is expected to play one of the bodyguards in the pic, which di Bonaventura hopes will pay homage to films like “The Wild Bunch” and “The Magnificent Seven” :

There are five really great characters, so that’s what’s really fun. There’s actually a sixth character that is sort of a cameo that’s really interesting too. I think we’re going to be able to put together a very eclectic international cast.

It’ll be interesting to see what actors they surround Willis with now that they’ve (presumably) got their centerpiece for the team of bodyguards. The actor is next set to star in “A Good Day to Die Hard”, which recently cast Jai Courtney as John McClane’s son.
