Bruce Willis On For Fire With Fire
With Josh Duhamel and Curtis Jackson

04 May 2011  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Variety

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is not the world’s greatest actor. When you can't make a convincing stab at playing a character based on you, it might be time to start re-evaluating your career choices. Still, that doesn’t stop him getting work, and he’s teaming up with Bruce Willis and Josh Duhamel for vigilante thriller Fire With Fire.

Actually, that should be Jackson’s re-uniting with Willis, since the pair just worked together on heist drama Setup. The criminal theme continues in Fire, which finds a fireman (no idea which of the three will play that role, but we guess Duhamel) who has to enter the witness protection programme when he’s able to testify against a violent criminal.

Trouble is, the wrongdoer tracks him down and threatens both the heroic fire-stopper and the love of his life. So our hero takes matters into his worn hands and tries to save his lady. Do you see? It’s called Fire With Fire because he’s a FIREMAN and he’s fighting FIRE with FIRE? Eh? Anyone? Sigh…

David Barrett will be behind the camera for this one, working from a script by Tom Conner and aiming to kick off shooting next month. And you’ll likely be less than surprised to hear the distribution rights will be hawked at Cannes next week.
