It solidified a long relationship that Willis has had with Emmett/Furla/Oasis. He has made 14 films with them, with 10 Minutes Gone in post-production and past efforts that include the Richard Donner-directed 16 Blocks and the Stephen Frears-helmed Lay the Favorite.
The first in the new three-pic pact will be Trauma Center, written by Paul da Silva. It will begin shooting in February in Miami. Additional casting is underway on the film. Emmett, Furla and Lydia Hull will produce Trauma Center, while Ted Farnsworth, Tim Sullivan and Alex Eckert will executive produce.
Speaking on the relationship between the company and Willis, Emmett said: “We consider Bruce a part of the MoviePass family at this point. Bruce is not only one of the biggest worldwide movie stars but is also a force to be reckoned with, and we look forward to the future with him.”
Said Willis, “After 15 years, I look forward to continuing to work with Randall and George in the coming year.”
EFO is in post-production on Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman along with Willis’ 10 Minutes Gone. The Michael Polish-helmed WWII drama Axis Sally starring Al Pacino is currently in pre-production.
