Willis reunites with Edward Drake, who directed him in Cosmic Sin, in this film. Drake collaborated on Cosmic Sin with Corey Large, and the two previously collaborated on the Willis film Breach. Drake and Large also collaborated on Apex, writing the following story: Ex-cop James Malone (Willis), who is serving a life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit, is offered a chance at release if he can survive a lethal game of Apex. On a lonely island, six hunters pay for the privilege of hunting another human, but when Malone comes, all hell breaks loose. Malone tries to turn the tables by setting traps and playing mind games in order to fight for his life and future. IMDB
The concept of hunter against prey is given a unique spin in this film. Bruce Willis and Neal McDonough go toe-to-toe in a battle of epic proportions. This fall, we’re thrilled to present this nonstop action thriller to theaters. ” I no longer have high hopes for Bruce Willis films because he has sleepwalked through far too many of them, and I have low expectations for Apex. I’m hoping that this will be a fun action film, and that Willis’ acting will be more vibrant this time around.
