The kidnap thriller Captive could provide a future starring role for Bruce Willis...

It was only the other day that it suddenly dawned on us just how prolific Bruce Willis has been over the last couple of years. Did you know that in 2012 he was credited on new fewer than six films?

The next Willis joint on the horizon is Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's sequel to their hyper-stylised 2005 film. Further ahead, there's The Prince, which is some sort of kidnap thriller starring John Cusack and 50 Cent.

Clearly intent on keeping himself busy, Willis' latest potential project is called Captive, which is another thriller, this time about a millionaire held to ransom in Brazil and a detective attempting to track him down.

Captive was initially intended as a vehicle for Arnold Schwarzenegger, who's since dropped out. Director Simon Brand - who previously made 2006's Unknown, not to be confused with the more recent Liam Neeson flick - will start filming the movie in March.

We're not entirely sure whether Willis will play the kidnapped millionaire or the cop trying to rescue him - we're guessing it's the latter - but when we find out more, we'll let you know.
