M. Night Shyamalan Eyes Bruce Willis Reunion For 'Labor of Love'

M. Night Shyamalan reteaming with Bruce Willis to shoot one of the very first scripts of his career may sound like a frightening proposition, though Labor of Love appears to be going ahead and will be touted around the Berlin Film Festival in February, according to Mike Fleming Jr at Deadline.com.

Shyamalan and Willis made The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable together - probably the two best movies of the director's up-and-down career - and Labor of Love goes back even further. The script was one of the very first screenplays that the Indian-American director sold - to Fox, in 1993. The film was never made after Shyamalan touted himself as director, though Denzel Washington was apparently sniffing around the project a couple of years ago

In Labor of Love, Willis will play a Philadelphia book store owner who loses the love of his life in a traffic accident. Not big on words, his character becomes haunted by the idea 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 begin the trek from Philadelphia to Pacifica, CA - her favorite place.

Fox still controls the script though it could change hands after it becomes hot property in Berlin.

Shyamalan's last movie, the sci-fi adventure movie After Earth with Will Smith, was widely considered one of the worst movies of 2013. It is nominated for the Razzie for Worst Picture.
