Mos Def goes for 16 Blocks

Mos Def will star opposite Bruce Willis in the action/drama 16 Blocks. Richard Donner is directing from a screenplay by Richard Wenk. The movie centers on an aging cop (Willis) who is assigned the seemingly boring task of escorting a fast-talking witness (Def) from police custody to a courthouse in New York City. However, it won't be an easy job, as there are various forces that are trying to prevent this from happening.

Willis goes 16 Blocks

Bruce Willis is in talks to star in director Richard Donner's action-drama 16 Blocks. The film is based on a pitch from Richard Wenk and centers on a troubled NYPD officer who has to take a cheerful but hapless witness 16 blocks from the police station to their final destination at 100 Centre Street. Naturally, no one wants the duo to make it. Essentially, it's a mismatched buddy film featuring a cop with a dark personality and a lot of stress alongside the optimistic but loveable loser.
