Who needs The Expendables? Certainly not action legend and legendarily difficult interviewee Bruce Willis, who has headed instead to a very different type of film, which finds him playing a man who shoots rainbows out of his… Actually, it’s another action thriller, called The Prince.
Sarik Andreasyan is directing, working from a script by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore that finds a retired Las Vegas mob enforcer who must return to Sin City when his teenage daughter goes missing. So… a bit like Taken, then?
Willis won’t be playing the main man. He’s actually taking on what will likely be a villainous role as someone who has waited years for the enforcer to return and is ready to kick off a confrontation.
Andreasyan is locking in other cast members now, and plans to start shooting next month in New Orleans. Willis is also attached to American Assassin and Expiration and will return to the role of John Hartigan in Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which is due out here on August 29 next year.
