M. Night Shyamalan and Bruce Willis have worked on two movies together, and after nearly 15 years since their last collaboration, they're teaming up for a movie titled Labor of Love, according to Deadline.

In Labor of Love, Willis will play a Philadelphia book store owner who has lost his wife in an accident. Remorseful over not adequately expressing his love for her when she was alive, he decides to honor one of her whims and walk across the country from Philadelphia to Pacifica, CA.

The movie is many years in the making as it is one of Shyamalan's earlier scripts, dating back to 1993 when he was trying to get Fox to allow him to direct it.

Production is planned for sometime this September.

After striking out with The Last Airbender and After Earth, Shyamalan could use a hit, and the best way to get back his mojo is probably with a smaller, more intimate movie like this one. Having Willis in your movie wouldn't hurt either.
