With the upcoming Midnight in the Switchgrass set to take their collaborations to 17 movies, Bruce Willis and Randall Emmett and George Furla’s Emmett/Furla Films have moved to extend their partnership with an additional three-picture deal.
Midnight in the Switchgrass had just started shooting before the lockdown in March and is set to resume shooting on June 29th in Puerto Rico. The film, Emmett’s directorial debut, sees Willis starring alongside Megan Fox, Emile Hirsch and Machine Gun Kelly.
Once filming wraps, Willis will remain in Puerto Rico and move straight into principal photography on Out of Death from director Mike Burns, where he’ll play a retired forest ranger helping a hiker (Jaime King) to elude four strangers she witnessed committing a crime.
Burn and Willis will then reunite on Run of the Hitman, which follows an “engineered mercenary who races the clock to stop a corrupt government official attempting to seize control of the mercenary organization to serve his own corrupt purposes”.
The third film in the deal, titled Killing Field, is being shopped at the Virtual Cannes Film Market, and follows a woman whose life on her serene farm is interrupted when a cop and a pair of dangerous criminals show up.
