The story centers a character named Mitch Rapp, a former Syracuse grad student who joins the CIA after his girlfriend his killed by a terrorist attack. According to Variety, Willis will play a CIA operative who serves as a mentor to Rapp.

This seems like a solid film for Willis, he's played this part before and it seems like something he'll easily be able to breeze through. At the same time, you know he'll end up giving a great performance. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the film, and Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Traitor) is set to direct it from a script by Mike Finch.

The movie is expected to go into production in the fall of 2013. The next movie we'll get to see Willis in is Rian Johnson's awesome looking sci-fi film Looper
