Bruce Willis in Pro-Iraq War Film

2 weeks ago on Monday November 21 I told you about Hollywood star Bruce Willis and his recent trip to Iraq. I also told you he was considering making a movie about a unit in Iraq. He now says it is in the works.

Willis' film will be based on the exploits of the highly decorated members of the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry, known as the "Deuce Four," according to the London Times. The Deuce Four has spent the past year battling terrorists in the northern Iraqi town of Mosul.
Along with Stephen Eads, the producer of "Armageddon" and "The Sixth Sense," Willis attended the unit's homecoming ball this month in Seattle, Washington.

Willis has been to Iraq himself and said he intends to return shortly. "What I saw over there is not reflected in the news whatsoever," he told MSNBC.

"You know, the coalition forces there are getting the power turned back on. They`re getting the schools opened up. They`re getting hospitals opened back up."
The Hollywood conservative said U.S. forces have done a tremendous job in beginning to establish a modern society for the Iraqi people - "not to mention winning the war."

"This is the same fight the US fought 60 years ago,? he declared.
