If you were to ask me that a reboot of a 90s actioner just made its way to production some months back, I would have looked at you like you needed your head examined.
Screendaily is reporting that Bruce Willis is attached to star in John Pogue‘s new thriller, Wake, which begins filming next month. The film will get some sales attention next month at the EFM in Berlin while Pogue, Willis and the cast and crew commense filming in Cleveland, Ohio on February 16.
From Benaroya Pictures with revivals of Chris Borelli’s script by Pogue, Wake will center on Willis‘s role as a sociopathic exile who defends his family after coming home to his childhood roots on a remote island to pay respects to his late brother. There’s no word yet on who else will be cast, although fans who’ve enjoyed Willis’s recent stints with helmer Brian A. Miller’s The Prince last year and are looking toward this Friday’s theatrical/digital release of the sci-fi thriller, Vice, will surely find Wake something to enjoy in all its glory.
There’s no word yet on whether or not he’ll be back on set with Sylvester Stallone for another potential Expendables film though, but at least they’re getting along now. At any rate, there are 351 days left to the year, so let’s see what happens next.
