Hey, remember that trailer we showed you in March for the awful-looking Bruce Willis/50 Cent thriller Setup? It may have looked laughably-bad to all of us, but apparently Willis and Fiddy had a fun time working together because they’re re-teaming for another indie crime flick. Variety reports that Willis and 50 Cent (I was going to simply say “actors”, but then I realized that would only be half-true) along with Josh Duhamel will star in Fire with Fire. The story “centers on a fireman in the witness protection program. When he’s threatened by the man he plans to testify against, he takes matters into his own hands to save the love of his life.” There’s no justice quite like fireman justice. Just ask Howie Long. David Barrett will direct from a script by Tom Conner.
Voltage Films will be selling the rights to the film at Cannes next week. Filming is expected to begin on June 27th with an almost-inevitable-direct-to-DVD release date to be announced at a later date.
