Bruce Willis is in talks to star in the Lionsgate action-thriller Extraction, which is being directed by Steven C. Miller (Submerged). The story centers on Bruce Willis' character, a CIA operative who is still tormented over his wife's murder. His son joins the spy agency to follow in his father's footsteps, as they both begin work on a top secret weapons project known as Condor.
The plot thickens when the father is kidnapped by a terrorist group. After learning that the CIA isn't planning a rescue mission, the son tries to save his dad on his own, which plunges him into a conspiracy that he is nowhere near ready for. Umair Aleem wrote the screenplay, with Emmett/Furla/Oasis' Randall Emmett and George Furla producing alongside Aperture's Adam Goldworm. Tim Sullivan, Brandon Grimes and Gus Furla are serving as co-producers. EFO is providing the financing along with Ingenious and Odyssey Media Releasing.
Production is scheduled to begin February 9 in Alabama. Lionsgate and Grindstone will distribute the film in the U.S. through their distribution pact, with the Highland Film Group selling the project to international buyers at Berlin's European Film Market next month. The project marks Bruce Willis' seventh film with EFO, including last year's Vice and The Prince. Bruce Willis will next be seen in Rock the Kasbah and Wake.
