Bruce Willis Eyeing Three More Action Pics


The Hollywood Reporter‘s Risky Biz Blog says that 54-year-old Bruce Willis is eyeing three more action films, including a thriller for NuImage/Millenium titled Inventory, the CIA tale Red for Summit and the mob biopic Scarpa for Morgan Creek.

In Inventory, Willis, who is in negotiations for the role, would play a detective on the trail of a murderer.

In Red, Willis would portray a former black-ops agent who has gone into retirement but is forced back into action when a high-tech assassin comes a-callin’ to threaten him and his girlfriend. Erich and Jon Hoeber are writing the screenplay, which is based on the WildStorm/DC Comic.

Willis has also been weighing an offer from Morgan Creek to play the title character in Scarpa, a mob biopic directed by Tears of the Sun helmer Antoine Fuqua about Greg Scarpa, an FBI informant who worked deeply undercover in New York’s Columbo family, though the odds are growing that Willis won’t do that pic.

Willis is attached to or is starring in a host of other action movies — the buddy action-comedy tentatively titled A Couple of Dicks at Warners, likely to be his next movie, and Lionsgate’s adaptation of the video game title Kane & Lynch.
