So, assuming Mr. Screenwriter isn't just imagining things and deleting things to increase intrigue, Foxx will play the schizophrenic psychopath/ticking time bomb to Willis' Kane, a mercenary who is broken out of prison and given "72 hours to recover a doomsday device," with his kidnapped wife and daughter used as incentive. Yes, it was once a stolen fortune, but why deal with that tired pile of gold when you can help move the doomsday clock forward another notch? ...especially when your main source of help is a psychopath!
Simon Crane is directing Ward's script, and I imagine production should start soon; last October, production was slated to begin this month. Willis is said to have thought the script was killer, so let's hope this will be a juicy little psychotic role for Foxx, and not another shmehfest like Cop Out.
