Bruce Willis in Talks to Star in Red

The Hollywood Reporter‘s Risky Biz Blog reports that Bruce Willis may star in comic book adaptation Red:

In “Red,” Willis would portray a former black-ops agent who has gone into retirement but is forced back into action when a high-tech assassin comes a-callin’ to threaten him and his girlfriend. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are producing, and Erich and Jon Hoeber are writing the screenplay, which is based on the WildStorm/DC Comic. (DC’s Gregory Noveck is exec producing.)

Producers are now out to directors, with Richard Donner said to be among the names on the shortlist. Donner and Willis, of course, collaborated on the 2006 cop drama “16 Blocks.”
