Willis: Brit stars are new heroes

Bruce Willis has said that British actors like Jason Statham and Daniel Craig will be the next generation of action heroes.
The Die Hard star, who will reprise his iconic role of New York cop John McClane in A Good Day To Die Hard, is part of the 90s action set alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.
"I think there are new action stars - I think Jason Statham is one. He's really good," he told the Sun.
"And Daniel Craig is a pretty tough guy. He reinvented that whole genre. He made me start watching James Bond movies again. He's great."
Bruce - who will attend the premiere of A Good Day To Die Hard in London on February 7 - reckoned that the British pair would need some time before they reach Arnie and Sly's ranks.
"It takes a while to become a guy that is as mythical as Arnold Schwarzenegger. He's done a lot of things. He was the Governor of California - that was the most amazing thing that I have ever seen," he added.
