Bruce Willis in talks for 'American Assassin'
Bruce Willis is in talks to star in the thriller "American Assassin" for CBS Films according to Variety.
In the film, Willis would play a CIA Agent-turned-assassin who takes a rookie agent under his wing after the rookie's girlfriend dies in a terrorist attack. The studio is reportedly searching for an actor to play the younger assassin.
Jeffrey Nachmanoff ("Traitor," "Homeland") is directing from a script by Michael Finch ("Predators"), with Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers") will produce along with Nick Wechsler.
"Assassin" is tentatively scheduled to start shooting the fall of 2013.
Willis has a slew of sequels on his upcoming schedule, including the upcoming "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," "A Good Day to Die Hard" and "Red 2."
