Inside Move: Studios eye Willis’ dancecard

'War,' 'Unfaithful' vie for thesp's attention

This article was corrected on Sept. 21, 2000.

NEW YORK — Just as he began production on the Barry Levinson-directed MGM film “Bandits,” Bruce Willis is zeroing in on his next available slot. Among the possibles would be joining Edward Norton in “Hart’s War,” the Gregory Hoblit-directed MGM adaptation of the John Katzenbach WWII novel that will begin shooting in January.

At the same time, he could materialize as the lead in “Unfaithful,” the Adrian Lyne-directed Fox 2000 remake of “La Femme Infidele.” Richard Gere is currently attached, but could have a scheduling problem if he takes another pic. Should that occur, Willis would be a fallback option. A much lesser prospect would be for Willis to topline the Revolution pic “Man of War.”

The “Hart’s War” role for which Willis is being courted is for a U.S. general who’s among the inhabitants of a German-run POW camp. The general is at odds with a young POW assigned to defend a black prisoner accused of murdering a fellow soldier. In “Unfaithful,” Willis would play a man who murders his wife’s lover.

Willis will next be seen reteaming with “Sixth Sense” writer/director M. Night Shyamalan in “Unbreakable.” Arnold Rifkin is Willis’ partner in the production entity Cheyenne Enterprises.
