Bruce Willis to Star in Five Against A Bullet

Bruce Willis will star in “Five Against A Bullet”, the action thriller being developed by producers Lorenzo DiBonaventura, Jordan Schur, and David Mimran for Columbia Pictures, it was announced today by Hannah Minghella, president of production for Columbia Pictures.

Alex Litvak is writing the screenplay which centers on a Mexican politician who, after his father is killed by a drug cartel, hires the five best bodyguards from around the world to protect him through a contentious election.

Commenting on the announcement, Minghella said, “We have been excited about this project since acquiring the rights last year from Mimran Schur and believe Bruce Willis is the perfect actor to lead this cast. We look forward to moving “Five Against A Bullet” into production quickly.”

Sam Dickerman and Lauren Abrahams are overseeing the project for the studio. Erik Howsam, who first brought the project into Columbia Pictures, will oversee on behalf of DiBonaventura Pictures.

Willis was last seen in the Golden Globe nominated feature film “RED” opposite Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich and he will next be seen in Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” and Rian Johnson’s sci-fi thriller Looper as well as this summer’s “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” & “Expendables 2″. Willis will soon begin production on “A Good Day To Die Hard” (the fifth installment in the popular “Die Hard” franchise).
