Bruce Willis must really like Cincinnati, because he's back in town to shoot another movie.

According to Film Cincinnati, Willis will star alongside Jessie Metcalf, Natalie Eva Marie and Lala Kent in "Open Source," a kidnapping thriller.

Crews with the film's production company, Emmet Furla, started shooting in the Queen City on Monday. The crews said they are looking forward to coming back to shoot their sixth film in Cincinnati.

“We love shooting in Cincinnati,” producer Randall Emmett said. “The city is so welcoming and the film office is one of the best in the country.”

While it is exciting to see stars like Willis coming back so often to Cincinnati, Kristen Schlotman, executive director of Film Cincinnati, said what's really great is the economic impact movies like this have on Cincinnati.

"The real excitement is seeing how many jobs these production companies create for locals and how much money they spend while in town," Schlotman said. "That’s what we care about.”
