Bruce Willis

Despite his declaration last month that he was “a bit bored” of action movies, Bruce Willis is apparently still eager to “earn lots of money” from the genre. The Die Hard star has signed on for The Prince, an action-thriller from Russian director Sarik Andreasyan. Emmet/Furla, who’ve recently worked with Willis on Lay the Favorite and Fire With Fire, will finance and produce. Hit the jump for plot details and more.

Since making the first Die Hard in the ’80s, Bruce Willis has built himself a fine career as an action star. While he occasionally forays into other types of roles from time to time (like in last year’s Moonrise Kingdom), there’s no question that he’s best known for his ass-kicking turns. Heck, this year saw him appearing in three different action sequels — A Good Day to Die Hard, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and Red 2.

But Willis claims he’s now growing weary of the same-old same-old. In a recent interview, he declared that he was “a bit bored” of action movies these days. Though to be clear, he still likes to “earn lots of money from those.” Hit the jump to read his comments.

Sylvester Stallone has been dropping bombs on Twitter in the past couple days, beginning with the announcement that Bruce Willis would not appear in The Expendables 3, but that Harrison Ford had been added to the cast.

Sly has now confirmed the participation of Mel Gibson (he’s the bad guy) and Antonio Banderas for the third Expendables movie. And there’s an interesting statement from the CEO of Lionsgate, who seems to be attempting to prevent Bruce Willis from being totally pissed off about the Expendables situation.

Jennifer Lawrence Jeff Bridges

Press junket interviews are usually so stale. You have so little time to talk to these celebrities, it’s near impossible to get a good, interesting, in-depth answer to a decent question. That’s why interviews where something awkward or different happens tend to go viral.

Two such interviews just popped online. One features Jennifer Lawrence totally geeking out on a press line when she catches a glimpse of Jeff Bridges. The other is Bruce Willis being brutally honest, and totally uncomfortable, with a very upbeat reporter. Check them both out below. Read More »

A Good Day to Die Hard header image

The fifth Die Hard film, A Good Day To Die Hard, got terrible reviews and was a medium-sized success in the United States. It seemed like American audiences didn’t really care about the Russian exploits of John McClane (Bruce Willis) his son, played by Jai Courtney. Or it was just a bad movie. Either way, that was not the case everywhere else in the world. The film was a success overseas, grossing almost $250 million internationally and pushing 20th Century Fox to move ahead with another installment.

We now have some news on the next installment of the Die Hard franchise. Its working title is Die Hardest and the current idea takes place primarily in Tokyo. The first script is being written by British writer Ben Trebilcook, who admitted Bruce Willis and other members of the team have yet to sign off, so all of this might go away. Read more below.

Update: Screen Crush reports that this is untrue through various sources within Fox; one says “there is no truth to this whatsoever.”
