Columbia Pictures announced today that Bruce Willis has signed on to star in Five Against a Bullet, an action thriller about five elite bodyguards hired to protect a Mexican politician against vicious drug cartels as he competes in an especially contentious election. Alex Litvak (Predators, The Three Musketeers) is penning the screenplay, with Lorenzo DiBonaventura, Jordan Schur, and David Mimran producing.
Five Against a Bullet represents the latest high-profile action project for Willis, who, as he nears the age of 60, is showing no signs of slowing down. He’s currently at work prepping A Good Day to Die Hard, his fifth turn as everybadass John McLane, and can next be seen in alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the summer sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which opens June 29. A few months later, he’ll join fellow aging action heroes Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the inexplicably PG-13-rated Expendables sequel.
