Filming begins August 7 in Cincinnati for the action film Reprisal, starring Bruce Willis and directed by Brian A. Miller, whose work includes the movies Vice, The Prince and Officer Down.
After his bank is violently and elaborately robbed, the assistant manager struggles to overcome his PTSD and continue taking care of his young diabetic daughter. With the police investigation going nowhere, he mounts his own investigation and tracks down the sociopathic criminal. Joining Willis in the cast is social media influencer Olivia Culpo as Christina.
Willis most recently was in Cincinnati shooting the 2016 release, Marauders. Known for playing wisecracking or hard-edged characters, Willis has appeared in films that have grossed in excess of $2.5 billion, placing him in the Top 10 stars in terms of box office receipts.
Reprisal is produced by Stephen J. Eads, Randall Emmett, George Furla and Mark Stewart. Emmett/Furla Oasis films most recently filmed the action thriller Escape Plan 2 and Acts of Violence. Besides Marauders, the production company also is responsible for Cincinnati-shot movies Inconceivable and The Life and Death of John Gotti.
“It's been fantastic filming in Cincinnati,” said Emmett. “The community, the locations are amazing to work with. We love making movies here.”
“We are excited to welcome Emmett/Furla Oasis films back to Cincinnati,” said Kristen Schlotman, executive director of Film Cincinnati. “Their familiarity with the city as well as our excellent talent pool of extras and crewmembers keeps bringing them back to make more feature films.”
