Bruce Willis Considers Captive
He's in talks for the action thriller

Bruce-Willis-Considers-Captive

Because action films are his bread and butter, Bruce Willis signed on for yet another one late last year, agreeing to star in The Prince. Now he’s taking on a film that someone else – in this case, Arnold Schwarzenegger – passed on, adding indie thriller Captive to his To Do list.

With Simon Brand set to call the shots starting in March, Captive will see an American real estate magnate living the high life in Brazil - until he's snatched from the streets and imprisoned in a cell hidden in a Sao Paolo landfill site. The whiffy prison stay is all a plot to grab a rich ransom, and the crime draws the attention of a detective specialising in kidnap cases to help find the missing man.

Schwarzenegger was attached when the film was shopped back in 2011, but it's been through several groups of behind the scenes talent since then, and will, unless he’s decided to play the kidnap victim, see Willis in yet another law enforcement role. As for when you’ll be able to see the bald grump on our screens again, he crops up as John Hartigan in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which will arrive on August 29.

Now we sort of want to imagine a pass-the-parcel movie role game between Arnie, Bruce and Sylvester Stallone, though given the still-raw falling out over money on The Expendables 3, Willis might want to be careful about anything he accepts from Sly.
