Bruce Willis is in talks to star in Simon Brand's indie action-thriller "Captive".
Ben van der Veen and Kario Salem penned the script which follows an American real estate magnate living in Brazil. Kidnapped and held for ransom in a prison cell under a Sao Paolo landfill, a detective specializing in ransom cases tries to find him.
Willis takes on a role which had originally been developed with Arnold Schwarzenegger in mind. He is no longer attached to the project in any capacity.
Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert, Randall Emmett, George Furla, Marina Bespalov and Michael London will produce. Filming is currently slated to begin in March.
