FORTRESS (2021) Preview of Bruce Willis action thriller



Fortress is a 2021 American action thriller film about a retired CIA agent and his son fending off criminals in their high-tech bunker.

The film is the first of a trilogy starring Bruce Willis. Principal photography on Fortress 2 has already been completed by director Josh Sternfeld – it was filmed back-to-back with the first entry in Puerto Rico – and the sequel is currently in post-production.

Directed by James Cullen Bressack (Hot Seat; Survive the Game; Beyond the LawBlood CraftBethanyPerniciousBlood Lake) from a screenplay written by Alan Horsnail. Produced by Randall Emmett, George Furla, Bobby Ranghelov, Luillo Ruiz and Chad A. Verdi.

Robert (Bruce Willis) is a retired CIA agent living at a secret resort in the woods. One day, his estranged son Paul (Jesse Metcalfe) arrives at the camp for a visit. Unfortunately, Paul is followed by Robert’s old nemesis, Balzary (Chad Michael Murray).


As the site is besieged by Balzary’s attack squad, father and son retreat to a high-tech bunker. But are its steel walls and advanced weapons of the bunker powerful enough to match Balzary’s bloodthirsty plans for revenge?
