Shyamalan reteams with Bruce Willis for Labor of Love

The former partnership are in talks for a third film together

Shyamalan is set to reteam with his Sixth Sense and Unbreakable star Bruce Willis for a brand new film based on one of the writer-director’s very first scripts.

Deadline reports that the pair are in talks to team up again for Labor of Love, a script that Shyamalan sold to Fox in 1993 but didn’t get made because he was fighting to direct the film too. The studio wouldn’t go for this arrangement and the project lay untouched for several years.

According to reports, the film is far removed from Shyamalan’s usual supernatural fare and will see Willis play a book store owner in Philadelphia who is haunted by the fact that he never properly told his wife how much he loved her before she died in a tragic accident.

Remembering that she once asked if he would walk across the country for her, he decides that this is the only way to show his love for her and proceeds to trek from Philadelphia to Pacifica, her favourite place.

Think the partnership can recapture the magic of Shyamalan’s earlier films? Let us know below...

      And the trend of Bruce Willis not giving a F*** continues.

      I think Shyamalan brought the best out of Willis, his two best acting roles were in The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable in my opinion. I'm not surprised Shyamalan is doing a love story , most of his movies have a romantic relationship undertone.

      YES! M. Night is a genius. A master of suspense. He's been an inspiration to me since I was a kid, and he's never failed to make me care about the characters and be in suspense when they're in danger. And he's also making a creepy thriller this year. According to his Twitter page, it involves filming inside a "spooky house". I can't wait for BOTH of these movies.
