Bruce Willis Re-Teaming With M. Night Shyamalan

The last time Bruce Willis and M. Night Shyamalan teamed up together they gave us one of the best superhero origins films to date in the form of Unbreakable.  Before that they’d given us one of the best twist endings ever with The Sixth Sense.  Since then Mr. Willis has got back to his Die Harding ways while M. Night’s career has taken something of a nosedive with films like The Last Airbender and last year’s After Earth.  So things could be looking up with news that the actor and director are teaming up again for Labor Of Love.  The film will see Willis as a bookstore owner who loses his wife in a tragic accident who after her death begins to realise that he never expressed how much he loved her.  So, remembering that she once asked him if he would walk the earth for her, he decides to take a stroll from Philadelphia all the way to California, which was her favourite place.  The script is actually one of M. Night’s earliest and was originally sold to Fox before The Sixth Sense was made.  Since then it’s languished in production limbo with Denzel Washington recently expressing an interest in it.  On the surface there doesn’t seem to be any mention of M. Night’s ghostly, twisty turny shenanigans but then again there is a dead wife so who knows. Before all that Willis will be seen in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.  Source – Deadline

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
