The Bruce Willis - 50 Cent pact is back for an indie film and they will be joined by Josh Duhamel. Willis and the rapper previously teamed up in a thriller titled "Setup", which is likely to go straight to DVD after a series of bad reviews.

"Fire with Fire" is a production of Emmett/Furla and Cheetah Vision, and is directed by David Barrett using a script by Tom O'Connor. According to Variety, it centers on a fireman in the witness protection program. When he's threatened by the man he plans to testify against, he takes matters into his own hands to save the love of his life.

Production is due to start on June 27 and would be marketed by Voltage Pictures at Cannes International Film Festival next week. Pic is part of a 10-picture deal announced last fall that includes "Setup" and "Freelancers". The latter has just nabbed Dana Delany to star opposite Robert DeNiro, Beau Garrett and again, 50 Cent.

In "Freelancers", 50 would portray the son of a murdered police officer who has succumbed to the "culture of corruption" that's infected the force. Delany is a woman from his past. Jessy Terrero is to direct the film with script provided by L. Philippe Casseus.
