Berlin: Bruce Willis Sci-Fi Action Pic 'Vice' to Be Shopped to Buyers
Berlin – The Bruce Willis sci-fi action project Vice, to be directed by Brian A. Miller, will be shopped to buyers at EFM by German/U.K. sales and finance banner K5 International.
Willis stars alongside Ambyr Childers (The Master) and Thomas Jane (The Mist) in the film set on a futuristic resort where synthetic humans serve the rich, who live out their darkest fantasies.
The humanoids are reset every night by the resort’s owner, played by Willis, but one female employee, Kelly (Childers), malfunctions and retains every terrifying memory.
Realizing what the tourists are doing to the staff members, she sets out to exact revenge.
Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films, whose box office hit Lone Survivor has taken in more than $100 million in the U.S., is behind the production. K5 Media Capital is financing the picture alongside Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films.
Directed by Miller, Vice will be produced by Randall Emmett, George Furla of Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Adam Goldworm, and executive produced by K5’s Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur alongside Grindstone Entertainment’s Barry Brooker and Stan Wertlieb.
Written by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore (The Prince, upcoming San Andreas, which stars Dwayne Johnson), Vice begins shooting in Alabama in March.
K5 International is handling international sales and will be pre-selling at Berlin’s European Film Market.
