Willis Joins Mostow’s Surrogates

Bruce Willis will star in the sci-fi thriller “The Surrogates” which Jonathan Mostow will direct for Touchstone Pictures reports Variety.

Based on a graphic novel, the story is set in the near future, where humans live in isolation and interact vicariously through surrogate robots who are better-looking versions of themselves.

Willis plays a cop who, through his surrogate, investigates the murders of others’ surrogates. The cop is forced to venture from his own home for the first time in years and unravels a conspiracy.

Michael Ferris and John Brancato (“Terminator 3”) penned the script, and the studio is aiming for a February production start in Boston.
