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

My first thought was about "The Passion" as well. Willis' pro-military film will rake in hundreds of millions while Hollywood scratches its collective head. The media will portray it as dangerous, DUmmies will picket theaters, and the American people will flock to it.

The movie industry could end their slump immediately if they would tell those true stories that Americans are eager to hear. Instead, Hollywood gives us Syriana, Fahrenheit 911, and Jarhead. It's like they want to lose millions.

Randall Wallace and Mel Gibson set it straight with "We Were Soldiers" about Vietnam, now Bruce Willis is doing it for The Iraq War.

Good for Bruce.

I am thinking the same. If he makes a decent film about the current GWOT, he will make a killing, and do the nation a service.

By this stage in WWII, how many movies had Hollwood already made, identifying the enemy, and uniting and focusing the nation?

Willis' movie will bring the current count to ONE.

I was predicting the exact same thing. Move over Mel Gibson, you have another great American coming to sit next to you.
