That certainly is a niche that hasn't been addressed by Hollywood.

Expect a "Passion of the Christ" blockbuster that will leave Hollywood experts aghast at the low and peasant-like tastes of the American public.

Good for Bruce.

It'll be nice to be able to see a new movie again.

I've often wondered about that. By my rough count, there are about 5 movies about Bosnia, one movie about Somalia, a few about the Gulf War, none about Panama, one about Grenada, a few dozen about Vietnam, 15 about Korea, and 205,159 movies about World War II.

There's money to be made there. Just like Fox News, stepping in to fill a conservative vacuum in a liberal media world, you'd figure that at some point the allure of making money would be enough for Hollywood to crank out a few good war movies.

It will be nice to go to a movie again. 'Passion...' was the last one for me.

If Bruce does it right, this will be one of the highest grossing films in history.

And the libs won't understand. They will call it a 'tantrum'.

Good for him. Too bad he numbers among the few hollywood people with any balls and cares about his country. The rest of the ignorant pampered "actors" don't like the U.S. because we have so much while others have so little. They, of course, don't count because they are different and special. urp

I would take a run at it just because it's Bruce Willis and it would be quite nice to see that perspective just once more before I die.

Oceans 12 had Bruce depicted as an idiot and all the cool actors were brilliant. Bruce was acting as an idiot within an enclave of the some of the most left wing actors in Hollywood... that was how they made him out to be and he was acting that way for good reason, for more than just the sake of the script, the cheap laugh, etc.... But now it is different and he ain't acting.

Who`s directing the film? Before I consider breaking my 10 year absence from any movie theater, I want to get more info.

I will predict the film is boycotted by antiwar folks, and there will be antiwar protesters screaming inside the theater while the movie is playing.

Anyone want to take me up on this?

It is a sad time in World. When you have one guy to tell the truth about Jesus. And one guy to tell the truth about our brave men and women of the Military fighting for their lives for our Freedom.

Bruce Willis is that rare legend in Hollywood - unabashedly pro-American. He's made a lot of money and didn't need to make this movie. More power to him!

There is TON's of outstanding "real life" material available to script writers. There are so many unsung hero's in this war, they could make a 100 movies and still only scratch the surface. Once the American people see their kids through the eyes of an honest film director and script writer, they'll be begging for more.

I'm really surprised that Mel Gibson hasn't already brought something to the market. Maybe he just hasn't found the right script yet.

The real question is which one of the pro-Moore/pro-terrorist Hollywood icon's will clamor to play the hero? Hollywood will boil with envy if the film is successful.

FINALLY!!

How many YEARS have we had to wait for some positive, Pro-American messages from Hollywood?

And how long did it take Hollywood to step up to the fight for WW2?

Not terribly long, as far as I can tell.

We live in truly evil times, and we have a long battle still to fight\.  Not all of our enemies are overseas.

Thank GOD for Bruce Willis and the few brave souls in Hollywood who dare to buck the Leftist, anti-American status quo.

I hope that Mr. Willis will make a BILLION dollars from his movie venture....perhaps that will encourage some of the COWARDS in Hollyweird to follow his lead.

Full Steam Ahead, Mr. Willis!  WOOO HOOO!!

I am absolutely for an honest and patriotic portrayal of the American soldier. And I am hoping that any moral and patriotic general staff officers we have remaining will be able to shake off the influence of the social engineers that are attempting to destroy our armed forces by using them as social laboratories.

I speak specifically of (1.) the male-female soldier fraternization and promiscuity in the ranks. I also speak of (2.) women in combat areas, especially where our military deliberately and knowingly placing mothers with children at home in places where they can be in the line of fire, as is happening in Iraq.

The things I have mentioned are indicators of what the nation we love and defend is becoming. Bruce Willis' films are seen around the world. I have seen them being shown in China. The world's people get their ideas of what America is (and is becoming) from Hollywood films. Okay, people around the world see the roles Bruce Willis plays, and says, "That's what Americans are like." So Bruce Willis, in their eyes, will be promoting the good soldier that defends the America that is the creeps that they see in Mr. Willis' other Hollywood roles.

Just one very real way to think about all of this. I love America, and I hope that the world would see our Nation as being GOOD. When I am on a bus in Shanghai, and see the Chinese staring at many of the weirdos from America that somehow have enough money to travel there, I am embarrassed. When I tune in to Voice of America on short wave radio overseas, I don't wonder that Asians believe that ALL Americans are Acid Rock and Rap music fans. VOA has ended virtually all symphonic and folk music from its programming, and then claims to represent what America IS to foreign audiences. Hence, to foreigners, we are all Rappers! Foreign TV is full of Sex In The City and Desperate Housewives type programming from America. So hundreds of millions of foreigners believe that America is all about those kinds of situations.

Thank you, Mr. Willis, for any attempt to portray the good and right in the American military, and God bless our young people who do have their lives on the line for the USA and OUR interests. AND let's be GOOD and RIGHT, and let's let the world see GOOD and RIGHT in all aspects of American life and society. AND let's ask Mr. Willis to portray the GOOD and RIGHT in other film roles as well.

I am not a war movie buff. However, I will go see this if for no other reason than to send Hollyweird a message. We'll even get the popcorn and $4 cokes.
