QED International will co-finance with Norton Herrick and produce with Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland), Palek Patel, Woods, Bill Block, and Paul Hanson. The project starts shooting in December and will cost $35 million.
Without much script detail, it's hard to tell whether or not this is a good role for Willis to take. If it is a character driven drama, hopefully he can handle it. Outside of The Sixth Sense, the actor hasn't done too many successful dramatic roles that don't involve a shotgun or pistol. Regardless, Willis has enjoyed a quiet but successful 2010 so far with Cop Out and his small role in The Expendables. With Red gaining a bunch of pre-release buzz, he should round out the year nicely.
