One of the first to notice the health condition that Bruce Willis was going through was Mike Burns, the director of ‘Out of Death’, who said in an interview for The Times that he had noticed several signs in his behavior. Even after several requests, he had to reduce the actor’s dialogue, and compress his screen time, in order to finish his work in one day.
The director commented, “After the first day of working with Bruce, I got to see him firsthand and realized there was a bigger problem at play here and the fact that they asked me to shorten his lines.” The concern of the family of Bruce Willis is urgent, as they fear that his health will deteriorate rapidly, and that he will lose the ability to communicate completely.

Some of the members of these productions stated that they doubted that the actor knew what he was doing on the recording set. The family has requested that they give the actor privacy at this time.
