Lala can go fuck herself. But who you DO NOT FUCK WITH IS BRUCE FUCKING WILLIS. HE IS AN ICON!
Sources said Emmett was happy to keep attaching Willis’ name to films, even as the action hero stumbled. In September 2020, Emmett was directing Willis, now 67, in “Midnight in the Switchgrass” and couldn’t get the actor to kick in a door — even with the help of a stunt coordinator, according to several crew members. In frustration, he left the set and a confused Willis asked, “Did I do something wrong?”
That evening, Emmett allegedly called his then-fiancée Kent in tears. “I can’t do this anymore,” Kent said he told her. “It’s just so sad. Bruce can’t remember any of his lines. He doesn’t know where he is.”
But he didn’t stop working with the “Die Hard” star. After that phone call, he went on to make five more action movies with Willis and allegedly used the A-lister as a cash cow for Emmett/Furla Oasis, his former production company with partner George Furla.
When the pair would need an infusion of money to pay off debts, they’d discuss making “another bulls–t Bruce Willis movie,” according to former assistant Anna Szymanska.
The numerous allegations in the LA Times story have been denied by Emmett. He said the teary conversation with Kent did not take place and that he was unaware of Willis’ declining health. In a statement provided to The Post, his spokesperson Sallie Hofmeister said “Randall is very proud of the work he and Bruce Willis have done over the last 15 years. In every single movie they have worked on together, Bruce enjoyed being on set, playing golf, going to dinners, and communing with the crew. If Bruce had not wanted to be on set, he would not have been there. Willis is one of the greatest actors of his time and was sought after by multiple production companies until his recent retirement. Randall counts him among his closest friends.”
Emmett carved out a niche in Tinseltown producing bad movies with aging action stars (BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA) such as Sylvester Stallone, Al Pacino and Willis, the latter of whom reportedly made $2 million for two days of work. While domestically they were straight-to-DVD flops, the flicks would be financial successes in international markets.
