Bruce Willis Might Join the CIA in American Assassin

Action icon Bruce Willis is now in talks to star as a CIA agent in the CBS Films thriller American Assassin, based on the Vince Flynn novel. Mike Finch scripted the adaptation for producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Jeffrey Nachmanoff is attached to direct.

Variety details the film’s story, which centers on Mitch Rapp, "a former Syracuse grad student who joins the CIA after his girlfriend his killed by a terrorist attack." Willis is in negotiations to play the mentor figure to Rapp.

Should he accept the role, this would mark a reunion for Willis and di Bonaventura, who worked together on Red and G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

The studio is currently eying a fall 2013 production start date.
