Bruce Willis is best known for his role as John McClane, the hero of the "Die Hard" franchise.

3 Mar – It has been reported that Hollywood's arguably favourite action hero Bruce Willis is set to take on yet another action role for his newest project, an action thriller titled "Five Against A Bullet", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Alex Litvak, best known for his work on Paul W.S. Anderson's "The Three Musketeers", will be writing the script.

"Five Against A Bullet" has been touted to be about a Mexican politician whose father was killed by a drug cartel, which leads him to hire the five best bodyguards from around the world to protect him as he goes through a contentious election.

According to Hannah Minghella, the production's president, "We have been excited about this project since we acquired the rights last year from Mimran Schur and we believe Bruce Willis is the perfect actor to lead this cast. We look forward to moving "Five Against a Bullet" into production quickly."

The project will be overseen by executive producer of "Battle Los Angeles", Sam Dickerman, for Columbia while "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" executive producer, Erik Howsam, will be in charge for DiBonaventura Pictures' side.

57-year-old Willis last starred in "RED" opposite Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich. His upcoming films are "The Cold Light of Day" on 5 April in Malaysia and 19 April in Singapore; "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" on 21 June in both Malaysia and Singapore; "Moonrise Kingdom" on 26 July in Singapore; "The Expendables 2" on 17 August in Malaysia and 16 August in Singapore and "Looper" on 28 September in Malaysia and 11 October in Singapore.
