‘Hard Kill’ Trailer: Bruce Willis Returns To Action As a Billionaire In a Mercenary Action-Thriller
Mercenaries are a hot topic right now and so are tech billionaires. Bruce Willis’ return to action is a bit of both and then some. Vertical Entertainment’s Hard Kill sees the Die Hard star is all set to make a comeback with what looks like yet another classic action blockbuster.
Hard Kill trailer introduces Bruce Willis as Donovan Chalmers, a tech billionaire with a coveted piece of tech (the bad guys obviously want it since its dangerous). Donovan needs help securing his tech after it is stolen by terrorists and he’s found just the guy for the job, ex-marine Derek Miller played by Jesse Metcalfe who has some history with the terrorist. Derek is tasked with re-teaming with his group of mercenaries to finish the mission. But things get increasingly complicated when Donovan’s daughter is abducted. This pulls Donovan in the center of the action. The trailer ends with Bruce Willis telling Derek “I got your back soldier”, so yes, you’ll most likely see him in a few gunfights too although the heavy work in does by the mercs.
In case you’re wondering why the film is giving you all those Netflix’s Extraction vibes, I’ll have you know Joe Russo has co-written the script with Chris Lamont based off a story by Clayton Haugen and Nikolai From. Director Matt Eskandari who has worked with Bruce Willis before on Survive the Night and Trauma Center helmed the film which also features Natalia Eva Marie who is a WWE superstar and Sergio Rizzuto.
The film is all set to release in theatres and on-demand on August 28.
