Bruce Willis bravely acts in trailer for ‘Detective Knight’ while battling crippling Aphasia

We have all loved actor Bruce Willis for decades for his movies like ‘Die Hard’ and ‘The Sixth Sense,’ so when he announced his retirement from acting, a lot of hearts were broken.

However, a few projects were still in the works which are now being released after his retirement announcement. And fans of the actor are ecstatic to see him in action one last time.


In March 2022, Bruce Willis and his family announced that the actor would be retiring from acting because of a diagnosis that made it almost impossible for him to continue. The actor was diagnosed with Aphasia, which is a cognitive disorder that impacts and impairs a person’s ability to express and also comprehend language.

However, before his official retirement from acting, the actor completed a few projects which are now releasing after the announcement was made to the public. His new movie trailer has now been released. Detective Knight: Redemption, has captured everyone’s attention as being one of the last projects Willis will be in.


The movie is from a series of films, the last one being Detective Knight: Rogue. The series follows James Knight, who is always attempting to thwart the worst criminals in New York City.

The actor had been battling Aphasia while filming the movie which makes it all the more remarkable. That he was able to complete a full-length movie even after his diagnosis is a testament to how strong-willed the actor is and how committed he was to his craft. The movie will be releasing on December 9 in select cinemas.

This is the second movie in the trilogy with a confirmed third installment titled  Detective Knight: Independence to be released next year.

Willis has been staying out of the public eye ever since the family announced his diagnosis and retirement from acting. However, every now and then someone from his family might post a picture of Willis which lets us know he is doing okay.

Recently his daughter Scout Willis posted a picture of her mom and dad looking at one another with love on her Instagram story with the title ‘love.’ The couple was also holding hands and tenderly sharing a moment that was captured by their child.

It is so nice to see Bruce Willis on screen again! Hopefully, the actor is doing well and getting the care he requires to be himself.
