Bruce Willis Set For Action Thriller Expiration
As a poisoned hit man seeking a cure...

A Good Day To Die Hard

Given that Bruce Willis is best known for Die Hard, surely a film he stars in called Expiration can never end, because he dies hard. Geddit? Hello? Anyway, he has indeed signed on for the lead in hit man thriller Expiration.

No, it’s not the complicated struggle of a man battling his way to the shops to find a pint of milk still not past its best before date. Apparently the script, written by Broken City’s Brian Tucker, finds a hit man who discovers that he’s been poisoned and rushes to find a cure. That premise has shades of Crank, but we're guessing it will be less demented than that.

According to Variety, the script is in the works now and has a planned start date of next March. What it doesn’t have yet is anyone to direct and tell Bruce who to shoot, but backers Emmett/Furla Films are ironing out that particular wrinkle even now.

Willis, who was last seen in A Good Day To Die Hard, will next grace our screens in Red 2 (August 2). He’s also been at work on Sin City 2 for Robert Rodriguez, which is due sometime late this year.
