Shyamalan and Willis

14 years after Unbreakable, Bruce Willis and M Night Shyamalan are set to make a new film together...

It would be fair to say that both Bruce Willis and M Night Shyamalan haven't had the best of runs of late. Willis chose wisely with Looper, but is becoming more notorious for a string of movies in which he looks pretty disinterested at best. Shyamalan meanwhile has continued to deliver hit movies, but it's been a while now since he made a film that felt like a really good one.

It's interesting then that Willis and Shyamalan are set to reteam for the third time, following their hugely successful work on The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable (the latter of which is nearly 14 years old. Yikes). The project in question is Labor Of Love, which Shyamalan has written the script for and will direct.

Labor Of Love was one of the first screenplays that Shyamalan wrote, having originally sold it to 20th Century Fox in 1993. He's now going through the motions of reacquiring the rights, with the aim of starting production in September. The basic story sees Willis as a bookshop owner who, after the death of his wife, chooses to walk across the country in order to prove his love for her. I walk for dead people, then.

If shooting begins on time, then expect a release in 2015.
