Bruce will be shunned by the Hollywood elites. He'll have a hard time finding work unless he produces it himself.

And he just might make a mint like Mel Gibson did...I think that some people have figured out there a major media market the Hollywood elites abandon a long time ago...

So like Rush did in radio,and Fox did it in news, ...it looks like Mel, Bruce and other like them might do in movies....may the Hollywood left wing elites sink slowly in to the abyss like the old MSM is doing

There are a few of them left: Robin Williams, Drew Carey, Dana Carvey....9/11 changed a lot of them, but like most conservatives, they are just another part of the silent majority.

Add Jimmie "J.J." Walker to that list. Go to his website: www.dynomitejj.com , and click "JJ's views". Some of his comments are quite FR-worthy.

GOod for Bruce! He's got enough credibility in Hollywood to get this done, and not suffer too much from it.

[ 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. ]

Good idea.. Brucie could smoooze some star struck lefty say Katie "the sagging perk" Couric into it.. Would be a masterful stroke.. and HER public outrage after the final cut would insure a good turnout too..

BRILLIANT..

Somehow I don't think Bruce needs the bread.

Maybe Willis and Gibson could collaborate on something. What a team that would make!

I knew I didn't have say this. Great minds think alike, and all that...

That's why Tom Clancy's books were a hit.

Yep, the games, books by Tom Clancy and like I've said before,
the 'alpha males' in all the big selling romance novels are all Seals, Delta Force, former military, police officers... you get the picture....etc.

Honorable, protectors, decent, true and super conservative --- Survivors of past wars (first it was Vietman, then the Gulf War, now it's Afghanistan/Iraq). All heroic, good guys.

Funny, many of these books are written by lib females....I think it's their dirty little secret ;) Seriously, one author posts Michael Moore's web site to her elist, but her biggest fictional 'hero' is a guy fresh out of Afghanistan....go figure :)

I've said it before, no one writes bodice rippers about Ghandi.

Williams is no conservative, but he's made repeated trips to the ME on his own dime to enterain the troops. That earns him a great deal of respect in my book.

I was disappointed in Bruce's last couple of movies. Poor dude's just getting old, I guess. I'd like another Die Hard, please...

I don't think so. Bruce has been an outspoken conservative for years. He's too big and too popular and too talented to be shunned.

Hudson Hawk

Charlies Angels Full Throttle

Twelve Monkeys

Other than that, he's never made a bad movie.

Bruce is a big enough star and rich enough not to have to worry about the Hollywood libs shunning him.

He is a big fan of the President. Bush even asked him 3 years ago to be a spokesman for adopting children. Here is the link.

I didn't know. His stock just went up in my eyes.

(Bruce will be shunned by the Hollywood elites.)

...until his movie breaks records. Hollyweird doesn't realize the pent-up demand for a good AMERICAN war movie. I hope it's also well made.

After the Passion of the Christ, a successful movie like that may make some people (at least those who care about money) in Hollywood rethink the types of movies they are making.
