Bruce Willis and Paul Walker are in talks to star opposite Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson in Set Up, the feature debut of writer/director Mike Gunther. According to Variety, the action thriller centers on “a group of friends who are catapulted into the middle of a diamond heist that turns deadly.” A pretty generic logline, so the value of this one is up to the cast. Given the range of filmic effect (Willis: positive; 50 Cent: negative; Walker: none), we could end up with something wonderfully mediocre.
Willis is currently working on The Cold Light of Day, with Rian Johnson’s Looper and the drama Ten up next on his schedule. Walker will next be seen in Fast Five, the fifth film in the Fast & Furious series, starting June 10, 2011.
