From the company who brought you Lone Survivor...
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bruce Willis will star in Emmett/Furla Films' Vice. The company was responsible for the new hit Lone Survivor and recently acquired the spec sci-fi script Vice from Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore.
This will wil reunite Emmett/Furla (run by Randall Emmett and George Furla), with the writers and star of The Prince, a thriller starring Willis that finished production in Alabama. Adam Goldworm, a producer for The Prince, will produce Vice through Aperture Entertainment. Emmett's wife, Ambyr Childers (2 Guns, Ray Donovan, Gangster Squad), will co-star.
The film is described as a cross between Westworld and Grand Theft Auto. It's set on a resort in the future where the staff are "lifelike synthetic beings" and the rich "can live out their darkest fantasies." There is an "anything goes" policy as the memories of the androids are reset every night. One female staff member (Childers) experiences a glitch and gets all her memories back. When she realizes what has been done to her, she wants to get revenge. Willis plays the owner of the resort.
Producers and financiers Emmet/Furla sees the project as an action/thriller and will assign a director soon.
