Bruce Willis, Poisoned Hitman, Faces EXPIRATION

, Managing Editor

Do you remember Edmond O'Brien in D.O.A.? Or Dennis Quaid in D.O.A.? Or Jason Statham in Crank Well, you're not the only one.

Bruce Willis is attached to star in Expiration, according to Screen Daily. He'll play "a hitman who is poisoned and has to find a cure before he dies." Brian Tucker wrote the screenplay and will produce; his previous produced credit is Broken City, which came out earlier this year and was definitely a mixed bag. (My review.) Tucker is also listed as having a hand in the writing of the proposed Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance remake.

At 58, Mr. Willis is still viable as an action star internationally; he's got Red 2 coming up later this year. Reportedly, this production is budgeted at $60 million by financier and producer Emmett / Furla Films. With Willis under their arm, they can lock in a director now as they head toward production next year.
