Bruce Willis Joins Thriller ‘Extraction’

In a pre-Berlin Film Festival deal, Bruce Willis has joined the thriller “Extraction,” set to start shooting next month in Alabama.

Highland Film Group will launch international sales in Berlin. Producers are Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films’ Randall Emmett and George Furla along with Adam Goldworm through Aperture. Tim Sullivan, Brandon Grimes and Gus Furla are co-producers.

Stephen C. Miller is directing from a script by Umair Aleem. Willis plays a former CIA operative working with his son on the development of a lethal weapon when his father is kidnapped by a terrorist group.

EFO, Ingenious and Odyssey Media Releasing are funding the film, which will be released in the U.S. by Lionsgate/Grindstone.

Willis was also attached last week to another action movie for sale in Berlin: “Wake,” with John Pogue directing from a script by Chris Borrelli. Producers are Michael Benaroya of Benaroya Pictures, Tobin Armbrust, David Alpert and Chris Cowles.

Willis will next be seen in Barry Levinson’s “Rock the Kasbah” alongside Bill Murray and Zooey Deschanel. He’s repped by CAA, and Miller is repped by UTA and Aperture.

News about “Extraction” was first reported by Deadline.com.
