Bruce Willis drops out of Woody Allen’s next Film. Or was he Fired?

Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis quits Woody Allen’s latest film because of scheduling. Nobody would be surprised to know that a major star like Bruce Willis is a very busy man. It seems that he’s so busy that his packed schedule was overwhelmed and something had to give.

The Die Hard actor had to quit the movie he was supposed to be featured in with Woody Allen as the director due to conflicts with his schedule. Willis had to leave production in order to play in the Broadway adaptation of one of Stephen King’s most known works, Misery.

Some speculate that Willis was “let go” from the production. On-set images surfaced the same day that Willis resigned from the film featuring the actor. Woody Allen has let go many actors and actresses during production, after filming days of footage with them. Bruce Willis may have been the latest. The scheduling conflict angle may have been spin created by Willis and Allen to “save face” in the eyes of the ever-watchful-public.

Whatever the case may be, Allen will need to find a replacement for Willis in order to keep production in schedule. The undisclosed movie is another collaboration with Allen and producers Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum, and Edward Walson. Even without Willis, the movie still features an all-star cast of Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Paul Schnieder, Parker Posey, and Blake Lively.

The untitled Woody Allen feature has no no release date attached to it.
