Some of Bruce Willis' last ever acting scenes have been teased in a trailer for a movie which comes after he announced he would be ‘stepping away’ from his acting career.
With Christmas just days away many people might be gearing up for the annual 'it's not a Christmas film' argument over one of Willis' most iconic movies: Die Hard.
He's racked up credits in dozens of titles over the years, but while we'll always have the option of rewatching old favourites the amount of new content he's set to bring us is more limited. See one example of his upcoming work below:
Earlier this year, Willis, 67, announced he had been diagnosed with aphasia; a condition which causes difficulty with language or speech.
A statement released by family members at the time explained: "To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities."
As a result of the diagnosis, the statement confirmed that Willis would be 'stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him'.
We last saw Willis in the 2022 adventure film Detective Knight: Redemption, and he now currently has two projects listed on his 'upcoming' section on IMDb.
One is a 2023 thriller titled Assassin, and the second is a follow-up to Willis' most recent title, named Detective Knight: Independence.
A trailer for the latter showed Willis back in action as Detective James Knight as he pursues a vigilante emergency medical technician who is impersonating a police officer.
The action movie also stars Val Kilmer’s son, Jack, and Hunger Games star Willow Shields.
A synopsis reads: "Detective James Knight 's last-minute assignment to the Independence Day shift turns into a race to stop an unbalanced ambulance EMT from imperilling the city's festivities.
"The misguided vigilante, playing cop with a stolen gun and uniform, has a bank vault full of reasons to put on his own fireworks show... one that will strike dangerously close to Knight's home."
Willis' family said they wanted to 'bring his fans in' with them as they move through his health journey, 'because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him', they explained.
"As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that," they added.
Detective Knight: Independence is set to be released on on-demand and in limited theatrical release on 20 January, 2023.
