CATEGORIES Movie NewsBruce Willis is nothing if not totally willing to make fun of his advanced years while still churning out tireless action movies full of mayhem.
At least three franchises Willis is currently involved in ("Red," "The Expendables" and "Die Hard") fulcrum around the hey-isn't-this-old-guy-shooting-people-funny thing. Now it's been announced that Willis will star in yet another old dude action movie this time with the name (wait for it) "Expiration."
Willis, showing a new level of self-awareness, will star as a hardened hitman who is "poisoned and desperately searching for an antidote before he dies." So... "Crank?" Brian Tucker, who wrote this year's rote political thriller "Broken City," penned the screenplay, which is being produced by Emmett/Furla Films.
Willis's "Red 2" opens later this summer with plenty of jokes about how old he is while he fires automatic weapons at bad guys.
