  • MoviePass‘ film production subsidary, MoviePass Films, has announced that Bruce Willis will star in the company’s first production, a crime thriller titled “10 Minutes Gone.”
  • The company’s launch of MoviePass Films in June followed several releases from its previously existing distribution arm, MoviePass Ventures, which distributed the crime films “American Animals” and “Gotti” earlier this summer.

MoviePass’ film production subsidary, MoviePass Films, has announced that Bruce Willis will star in the company’s first original production, a crime thriller titled “10 Minutes Gone,” Deadline reports.

Brian A. Miller, who also directed Willis in the upcoming action film “Reprisal,” will direct “10 Minutes Gone” from a script by Kelvin Mao and Jeff Jingle.

MoviePass’ parent company, Helios and Matheson Analytics, launched MoviePass Films in partnership with production company Emmet Furla Oasis Films in May.

The launch followed several releases from the company’s previously existing distribution arm, MoviePass Ventures, which distributed the crime films “American Animals” and “Gotti” earlier this summer, in partnership with The Orchard and Vertical Entertainment, respectively.

“10 Minutes Gone” will be the first release from the company’s new production arm.

Deadline reported the film’s plot with the following description:

“The story follows a man who loses ten minutes of his memory due to being hit by a stray bullet during a bank heist gone wrong. He must put the pieces of his broken memory together in order to find out who sabotaged the job and took the money, all while being pursued by a powerful crime boss hellbent on recovering the cash. Willis plays the pissed off crime boss.”

The launch of MoviePass Films in June marked another attempt by Helios and Matheson to expand the MoviePass brand beyond the struggling movie subscription service it drastically remodeled this week, limiting subscribers to 3 movies per month from its previous one-movie-per-day plan.
