This now includes the new film Wrong Place, which was just released in theaters and on demand.
Wrong Place is directed by Mike Burns and written by Bill Lawrence. It stars Willis as a former police chief of a small town who must protect his daughter (Ashley Greene) from a dangerous meth kingpin. You can watch the official trailer for the film below.

Bruce Willis Has Been Enjoying Retirement
Enjoying his retirement, Willis also took a recent walk down memory lane. The actor, who has since retired to focus on his health, starred in the popular 1988 movie Die Hard in one of his most popular roles as the resilient hero John McClane. The film follows McClane as he thwarts a hostile takeover of a Los Angeles skyscraper known as Nakatomi Plaza.
In reality, Fox Plaza in Century City was used for the film’s Nakatomi Plaza setting, as the building was under construction at the time. A recent post on Instagram by Emma Heming Willis, Bruce’s wife, reveals that the Die Hard star has revisited the building in honor of the movie’s 34th anniversary. In the video, Willis reminisces as he stands on the roof of the skyscraper with the video clip including footage from Die Hard.

“Nakatomi Plaza 34 years later,” Emma says in the caption.
Willis has been spending a lot more time with family since stepping away from his acting career. In March, his family announced that he had retired from acting after getting diagnosed with aphasia, a condition altering the actor’s ability to communicate and understand language.
“Our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,” a statement from the family read. “As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him. This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support.”
The message added, “We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him. As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that.”
