BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MoviePass Films’ cofounders Ted Farnsworth, Mitch Lowe, Randall Emmett and George Furla, announced today that Bruce Willis has been tapped to star in “10 Minutes Gone,” a mystery/thriller to be directed by Brian A. Miller from a script by Kelvin Mao and Jeff Jingle.
Willis said he was “excited to be working with producers Randall Emmett and George Furla again with their new venture MoviePass Films.”
“10 Minutes Gone” follows the story of a man who loses 10 minutes of his memory after being hit by a stray bullet during a bank heist gone wrong. He must put the pieces of his broken memory together in order to find out who sabotaged the job and took the money, all while being pursued by a powerful crime boss (Willis) hell-bent on recovering the cash.
The film co-stars Meadow Williams, who recently completed filming “Boss Level” with Mel Gibson and Naomi Watts. Williams is currently in production on the film “After,” which she is producing and starring in as Professor Soto.
Swen Temmel, Sergio Rizzuto and Tyler Jon Olson round out the existing cast and further casting is currently underway for a start date of September 10th in Ohio. Emmett, Furla, Farnsworth, Lowe and Williams will produce with Barry Brooker and Stan Wertlieb serving as executive producers.
“10 Minutes Gone” marks the fourth collaboration between Emmett, Furla, and Williams. It is the third project for MoviePass Films after the mobster drama “Gotti,” starring John Travolta, and sorority thriller “The Row” starring Randy Couture and Lala Kent.
