Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver have joined Henry Cavill (The Tudors) in the thriller The Cold Light of Day. Directed by Mabrouk El Mechri (the excellent JCVD), the story (per Variety) “centers on a young American whose family is kidnapped while on a vacation to Spain. He’s left with only hours to find them, uncover a government conspiracy and the connection between their disappearance and his father’s secrets.” Cavill will play the young American and I presume that Willis will play the father.
Willis is currently attached to the action-movie/video game adaptation Kane & Lynch with Jamie Foxx, the indie crime drama Catch .44, Antoine Fuqua’s prison escape drama The Tomb, and Rian Johnson’s sci-fi flick Looper with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He’ll next be seen as a cameo in The Expendables and as the lead in the action movie Red. As for Weaver, she’s equally busy as she’s co-starring in the thrillers Abduction and Red Lights, and Amy Heckerling’s Vamps. She’ll next be seen in the sci-fi comedy Paul with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as well as the Kristen Bell romantic comedy You Again. The Cold Light of Day is set to begin filming on September 6th.
