50 Cent and Bruce Willis in a movie? And it has a trailer??

Mar. 23, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Pardon my language, but what the shit is this shit?

Today I was passed along a trailer for SETUP, a movie I've never heard of starring 50 Cent, Bruce Willis and Ryan Philippe, but was apparently filmed in my home state of Michigan in Grand Rapids. A plethora of phone calls from my friends about seeing 50 at the bar there make a lot more sense now.

It's apparently about a heist that goes terribly wrong, where Willis has the "pay me or else" role, Philippe has the "crazy but good looking villain" role and 50 has the "I was set up I swear" role. It looks uh, like you'd expect a movie starring Bruce Willis and 50 Cent to look, and that's not terribly good.

I can't seem to find whether or not this is going straight to DVD, but man, what is going on with Willis lately? I can see 50 starring in a movie likes this, especially one set in Michigan, but what the hell is Willis doing here?

See if you can make more sense out of this random project than I can.

THE TRAILER WAS REMOVED AT THE REQUEST OF THE PRODUCTION COMPANY

Extra Tidbit: "God has left Detroit." Can't argue with that.

agree with the comment regarding bruce willis' decisions lately. Looks to be going the route of De Niro and not even bothering to read scripts anymore or filtering through his choices in career moves.

the green color is because i think bruce willis deserves some love, the man has a great carrer, so hes entitled to make some, lets call them, less than great movies, and besides, this doesnt look all that bad, granted, the story wont be winning any awards any time soon, but still, it dont look that bad.

Just painful

When it comes to a well cut trailer, sometimes less is better. That was SNL skit worthy.

Oddly enough...

...it seems that Bruce Willis is willing (no pun intended) to do anything for a paycheck.

How the mighty have fallen....Jesus, I lit a better conversation in a car scene in college. Willis needs to fire his agent.

Bruce is WINNING!

Did Willis just do a suitcase of blow and forgot to tell the media? Next stop: porn star mansion.

That looks terrible.

I had already shorted this movie on HSX.com a while ago, now I really know why. Sorry but 50 can't act...at all. This is the definition of generic action revenge flick. Snore.

Nothing new

Bruce Willis has done tons of random roles,appearances or cameos in tons of movies...nothing new here...I'm guessing the story looked good on paper and Bruce likes doing random roles,for as long as I can remember, so that's what I make of this.Bruce thought It looked good on paper so he did it,he definitely doesn't need the money so he did it for fun...
That's just my opinion.

(vomits in mouth)

In my opinion, I think 50 has just been calling in favors to his big time buddies so he can get his acting career off the ground. Between this trailer and the other one for his other movie, he's bound to lose some A list support.

a guy I know got a 500 dollar tip to drive Bruce Willis around on this movie

so you live in Grand Rapids too huh? Small world. Yea they filmed this a few months ago. Had downtown streets blocked for a while. This is actually the second film 50 cent has done in town here. Don't really expect it to be all that good, but with Bruce onboard who knows.

Bad looking movie, but I am not sure

Bruce! get out of this straight to DVD movie quick! I know Bruce Willis is one of the best action actors in Hollywood, but I dont think being in this movie is the answer.

I live in Grand Rapids. This is actually the 3rd or 4th movie he has filmed here in the last couple years. His latest is being cancelled due not being able to receive the great tax credits Michigan has been offering Hollywood lately. Our Governer is a douchebag!

So I see 50 trying to buy his way into Hollywood like Will Smith trying to buy his son into it as well. Hollywood is just one big whore now. I expect 50 to leave the money on the dresser. Fuck this movie.

Wow. That looks horrendous. I've never seen spousal abuse/woman beating used in a trailer to make it look awesome. That Fifty Cents fella is just terrible. Where'd you go Bruce? Why? THE DARK KNIGHT RISES CUNTS!!!

This is just embarrasing for Willis and Philippe. Not for 50 Cent. He's a terrible actor. He should be doing these shit movies with Timberlake.

Honestly, what was Willis last great movie? Sin City and Hostage.

I agree Red was alright, though it still looked like Willis didn't wanna be in it. He and M. NIght need to get back together and revive their careers.

Fury159, I agree with you. M. Night got one of the best performances out of Willis from The Sixth Sense.
