BRUCE WILLIS IN 'LABOUR OF LOVE'! 1ST PIC OF JOHN MALKOVICH AS BLACKBEARD IN 'CROSSBONES' PIRATE SHOW! JEFF HEPHNER JOINS SHARON STONE IN 'AGENT X'! MEG RYAN, JACK QUAID, TOM HANKS FOR 'ITHACA' DRAMA

LABOUR OF LOVE UNITES
BRUCE WILLIS & M.NIGHT SHYAMALAN
Here's a truly beautiful story for you: 'Deadline' reports that M. Night Shyamalan and Bruce Willis will team up again on LABOUR OF LOVE in which Willis will play a Philadelphia book store owner who loses the love of his life in a tragic accident. Never big on words, he becomes haunted by the notion that he never properly told his wife how much he loved her. Since she once asked if he would walk across the country for her, he decides to show her posthumously just how much he did love her. That trek starts from Philadelphia to Pacifica, CA, which was her favorite place.

TELEVISION UPDATES

The show will revolve around America’s first female Vice President, Natalie Maccabee (Sharon Stone) with Hephner taking the role of John Case a.k.a.

And you can also check out the first picture of John Malkovich as Captain Blackbeard in CROSSBONES series coming to NBC this spring. Set in the same 1715 year as BLACK SAILS over at Starz, CROSSBONES will follow assassin Tom Lowe (Richard Coyle) who is sent undercover by the government to bring pirate leader Blackbeard down. But like many a clandestine agent, Lowe soon finds himself being drawn deeper and deeper into his world and even becomes sympathetic to the scoundrel’s political ideals.

As spring turns to summer, Homer delivers messages of love, hope, pain and death to the good people of Ithaca. He’ll also struggle with one message that will change him forever.

  1. Not sure how I feel about Malkovich playing Blackbeard... I think Hugh Jackman will do a better job in that upcoming Peter Pan project. Oh well, the more Pirates the better!

    1. the role was originally meant for Hugh Laurie, but he changed his mind and they had to give it to Malkovich. I think Richard Coyle will be the most interesting factor in the show. He is always brilliant

  3. I am timid on watching M. Night Shyamalan since his team up with Will Smith. I do like John Malkovich. He is creepy enough to pull it off.

  5. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I have yet to see an M. Night Shyamalan movie that I like.

  6. I agree, his best movies were with Bruce so I am definitely excited about something new from M. Night Shyamalan :)

    1. Hope they don't mess it up... apparently it is one of Shyamalan's first scripts he wrote and the film wasn't done before because he didn't want anybody else to direct it but himself

  7. Love Bruce Willis and John Malkovich! Would watch anything they are in.

    As for Melanie Griffith ... I shall definitely pass on that one! Shame, as I'd be interested to see what Jack Quaid's acting ability is like.

  8. Although I didn't love the last few Shyamalan movies, I still end up watching them anyway. I hope this is a good one.

  10. Night and Willis, this will be an interesting combo-you had me at book store-lol.

    I love Blackbeard legends. Supposedly Blackbeard had a home he boated to and from on the river I live nearby. Oh, this one does sound like my cup of tea. I am always on alert when too many stars are in a movie. It is more a party for them and there is less for us to dine on.
    You are right Dezzy...Night and Willis were very successful before in Sixth Sense!

    1. Never heard of him before this. Too bad he got his mom's face instead of dad's :)

  12. I thought really quickly, that he was the singer from Imagine Dragons, until I read further.
