We are never prepared for the curveballs that life throws at us. I’m sure actor Bruce Willis never would have thought he’d face early retirement as a result of aphasia. This health condition leaves a person unable to communicate effectively due to damage from a specific part of the brain. Knowing you will not see a particular actor on a film set ever again can make the special moments you had with them even more precious. And director Jared Cohn recalls a “powerful” moment that Bruce Willis helped craft on the set of one of his final films. 

One of the eight films that Bruce Willis completed since his retirement is Redbox Entertainment’s Vendetta about a man out for vengeance for the brutal murder of his daughter. Bruce Willis plays the father of the killer. Jared Cohn, whose favorite film happens to be Die Hard, felt “honored” to be able to spend time with the iconic action star before his retirement. Entertainment Weekly did an interview with Cohn about what Willis did to bring intensity to a particular scene in the action flick.

When we were shooting the climax, where Clive Standen’s character finally catches up to Bruce Willis’ character, they have this intense scene. What I wrote on the page, Bruce and Clive elevated. When Clive was to pull the trigger, Bruce looked at Clive and rose from his chair and walked to a couch in the corner of the room and sat under a partially closed window with a single shaft of light beaming down. Bruce walked and sat in the perfect spot, lit beautifully. He looked at Clive and smirked defiantly. That classic, famous Bruce Willis smirk. It was a subtle yet powerful moment of Bruce asserting his power.
