Bruce Willis may star opposite Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and Paul Walker in a new heist movie called Set Up to be directed by Mike Gunther. Hannibal Films has been working to sell this project to foreign buyers at AFM.
Set Up would be the first film under the recently funded Cheetah Vision banner. Cheetah Vision is a partnership between Jackson and Randall Emmett and George Furla's Hedge Fund Film Partners. Fred Malmberg (Conan) will serve as executive producer of this film. The group has teamed for a 10 picture movie deal which will be released by Lionsgate in the US.
The film is about a group of friends who find themselves in the middle of a diamond heist that turns deadly. I really like heist movies and the cast seems decent so this is a movie I am looking forward to.
Bruce Willis will most likely sign on for Set Up seeing as how it would continue his relationship with Curtis Jackson, Emmett and Furla who are involved in the production of Willis' film Catch .44.
Emmett/Furla Films know a thing or two about action related movies. They have produced Righteous Kill,16 Blocks and Street Kings. I love action movies and also have always been a fan of heist movies. What are your thoughts on this news?
