The 1997 sci-fi epic told the story of a 23rd-century cab driver who must join forces with a mysterious woman to recover four mythical stones in order to save planet Earth.
It received positive reviews from most critics and was a financial success, earning $263 million at the worldwide box office.
On filming with Willis told People:
"Of course, I keep him in my prayers and (we had) just great, great times,
"Bruce is such a huge star and such a legendary actor. The whole thing was showing up to the set, seeing him was always awesome. I'll never forget it. Working with him, it was an awesome time."
In 2022, Willis was diagnosed with aphasia and then frontotemporal dementia which can impact speech, behaviour and memory which led to his retirement from acting.
An update on Bruce Willis' health
Bruce Willis' daughter Tallulah recently provided an update on her dad's battle with dementia.
While appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show, Tallulah revealed that, despite everything that has happened, Willis retains his spirit as her dad.
"He is the same, which I think in this regard I've learned is the best thing you can ask for," she said. "I see love when I'm with him, and it's my dad and he loves me, which is really special."
Throughout his battle, Willis' family has been very open about their struggles as well as the struggles of the A-lister himself.
And, there are two reasons for this, according to Tallulah.
"I think on one hand, it's who we are as a family," she explained. "But also, it's really important for us to spread awareness about FTD. If we can take something that we're struggling with as a family and individually, to help other people, to turn it around, to make something beautiful about it, that's really special for us.
"Part of what's been a really beautiful way for me to heal through this is becoming like an archaeologist to my dad's stuff, his world and his little trinkets and doodads."
