Bruce Willis could reunite with M Night Shyamalan on the drama Labour Of Love.

The pair are in talks to team up for the film, which is based on one of the first scripts the filmmaker sold in his career, reported Deadline.

Labour Of Love would mark the third collaboration between Bruce and Shyamalan, following The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable.

Bruce is tipped to play a book store owner who loses the love of his life in a tragic accident, and decides to show his love for her by walking across the country from Philadelphia to Pacifica, California.

The screenplay initially went to Fox in 1993, but the film didn't get made because Shyamalan reportedly wanted to direct it himself. It then resurfaced a few years ago, when Denzel Washington showed some interest.

Production is expected to begin in September in Philadelphia.

Bruce, 58, who last starred in Red 2, A Good Day To Die Hard and GI Joe: Retaliation, will next reprise his role as John Hartigan in the sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
