Back in 2011 Arnold Schwarzenegger signed up to star in Captive. However he’s now left the film behind and Variety reports that Bruce Willis is in talks to take over the lead role in the action-thriller.
The film is about an American real estate mogul who is living in Brazil. He gets abducted and held for ransom in a Sao Paolo landfill, while a detective specializing in this sort of case tries to locate him.
Simon Brand (Unknown) is set to direct from a screenplay by Benjamin A. van der Veen and Kario Salem. Assuming Willis does sign on the bottom line, filming is scheduled to begin in March.
