Bruce Willis is poised to star in the upcoming drama Ten. Probably. To hear Deadline tell it, the ink on Willis’ contract is already dry, though a more cynical take at TheWrap deems his involvement “far from official.” Though no plot details are shared in either report, it sure seems like a project Willis would board based on his prior relationships with the personnel. Producer Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland) is the man who enabled Willis’ three-picture deal with Disney, which resulted in hit turns in Armageddon and The Sixth Sense. (Also, The Kid. Two for three!) Likewise, Ten scribe Skip Woods is currently working on the script for Die Hard 5. And director Patrick Allesandrin (District 13: Ultimatum) was at one point set to helm a Willis-led adaptation of Kane & Lynch, though such is no longer the case.
The $35 million production is set for December, once Willis finishes filming The Cold Light of Day. After Ten wraps, Willis has Rian Johnson’s time travel thriller Looper on the books for January. The actor can next be seen in the spy ensemble Red, which hits theaters October 15th.
