Bruce Willis struggled on film set before sharing aphasia, as Film producer Randall Emmett was accused of being aware of the famous actor’s health condition but pushed him to work despite the difficulty. Sources also said Emmett was happy to continue to associate Willis’ name with his films, even as the action hero faltered.

Emmett was the producer of “Midnight in the Switchgrass,” one of the 67-year-old’s most popular recent films, in which he appeared as an FBI officer.


According to numerous crew members, Emmett and his colleagues tried to persuade Bruce Willis to kick open a door while directing the film. Willis was guided over an earpiece, a stunt coordinator “gently” attempted to guide him, and Emmett mimed the moves for the actor to repeat, but the actor couldn’t understand, leaving him disappointed when he departed the set asking, “Did I do something wrong?”

This left the producer disappointed. Emmett called his fiancée, Kent, saying, “I can’t do this anymore. It’s so sad. Bruce can’t remember any of his lines… He has no idea where he is. “


Despite this, the director continued to collaborate with the Die Hard star following that phone call, producing five more action films.

A lawyer for actor Bruce Willis has argued that the celebrity “wanted to work” in the years after it was supposedly obvious to many around him in Hollywood that he was suffering from aphasia.”My client continued working after his medical diagnosis because he wanted to work,”
