Would you be interested in seeing a film that features a decent actor, alongside a bad actor, opposite a horrible rapper-turned-actor? If you like putting yourself through such painful situations you should keep an eye out for Set Up, a new action flick that will have Bruce Willis, Paul Walker, and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson as its leads. How does 50 keep getting legitimate work?
According to Variety, the premise of Set Up centers on “a group of friends who are catapulted into the middle of a diamond heist that turns deadly.” Didn’t we already see Walker in this movie? Wasn’t it called Takers? If not that what about the glaring similarities to Armored and every other heist-gone-bad film to hit theaters in the past 20 years?
Set Up will be written and directed by Mike Gunther, who has a background as a stunt coordinator. He previously worked on Live Free or Die Hard, which conveniently starred Willis. Do you see how everything comes full circle? Jackson is already on board with the project, while Willis and Walker are in negotiations. Somehow with Willis and Gunther’s history we’re sure he’ll sign on sooner than later.
