Bruce Willis should get Timmy Russert or another lefty propagandist to sign onto a part in this film. They could play the part of a lying journalist, who gets killed off by the movies end. A well deserved and most fitting outcome.

If he does make it, I will definitely go see it. I have young kids and haven't been to a movie theater since "Return of the King"!

Bruce will be shunned by the Hollywood elites.

He'll have a hard time finding work unless he produces it himself.

Anyhow, GO BRUCE!

That is so cool that Bruce Willis is taking on this project. It would not surprise me to find out that Mr. Willis would consider it an honor to play the part of LTC Kurilla. Michael Yon's writing is amazing stuff and if you go back to the beginning and read forward, the transformation you will see makes you happy and angry at the same time; happy at the success of the effort, and livid that we hear none of this in the MSM.

He just made my top 10 list of real people in America. I can only hope that others will have his fortitude.

I don't know what Bruce's political views are but I applaud him for making this movie. If the movie tells the REAL story of our troops in Iraq, I WILL go to see it. Thank you Bruce Willis.

This movie has all the elements that made "Passion of the Christ" so successful for Mel Gibson. The majority of Americans are at odds with Hollywood when it comes to politics, the Iraq war, and religion. Hollywood refuses to give us what we want - a patriotic war movie with a Rambo-like hero and a pro-America theme. If Bruce Willis produces a good movie, I expect ticket sales to rival Gibson's "Passion".

I hope he just goes ahead and makes it, regardless. But I wouldn't be surprised that, if he does have the courage to do it, other more timid Hollywood types might actually be emboldened to come out and support him. There have got to be some others who aren't totally left-wing bonkers, and maybe he'll encouarge them.

Hollywood is a slowly sinking ship anyway. Technology prices have come down to the point where you don't need a huge budget and the backing of a Hollywood studio to make a *really* good film.
