‘Die Hard’ and ‘Sin City’ star Bruce Willis is to take the lead in an untitled action-comedy about a Venice Beach private investigator who goes up against gang leaders, Samoan brothers and a loan shark after his dog is stolen.
Mark and Robb Cullen will direct the untitled film. The brothers will also produce alongside Voltage Pictures chief Nicolas Chartier, Zev Foreman and Laura Ford.
“Once I sat in a room with Mark and Robb and heard their vision, I was convinced they would deliver a killer fun fast-paced, cool, action comedy. This is the perfect film for Bruce, going back to his great roles in The Whole 9 Yards and Pulp Fiction,” Chartier told Deadline.
‘Silicon Valley’ star Thomas Middleditch, Jason Momoa (‘Game of Thrones’), and Famke Janssen (‘Taken’) are lined up for supporting roles.
Production is scheduled to commence next month in Venice, California. The Cullens previously worked with Willis on 2010s Kevin Smith-directed ‘Cop Out.’
