‘Hard Kill’ Trailer: Bruce Willis Takes Backseat To Jesse Metcalfe And Eva Marie In His Latest Action Flick

Somehow, someway, that guy from Desperate Housewives and John Tucker Must Die became a sorta action star? Jesse Metcalfe gets top billing over Bruce Willis in the upcoming flick, Hard Kill, which just goes to show how far the Die Hard star has fallen.

Also appearing in Hard Kill? Natalie Eva Marie. That name probably means less than nothing for 99% of you, but she is the ex-WWE superstar Eva Marie. In order to get across just how bad of an actress she was, she wasn’t even good enough to make it in WWE even though she looks like a million bucks. They could barely stand to use her on Total Divas. That said, she does seem right at home as member of an elite military unit out to stop a terrorist who has kidnapped a billionaire CEO’s daughter in order to get his hands on technology that could change the world.

The film is directed by Matt Eskandari, a Willis favorite who worked with him on Trauma Center and Survive the Night, the latter having just opened a couple of months ago. These dudes work fast.

Hard Kill hits theaters and VOD on August 28th.
