The 60-year-old "Die Hard" star was one of the first actors to sign on for Allen's as-yet-untitled movie, but he has since pulled out of the project, reported Deadline.
Production on the film began this month, but Willis reportedly decided to bow out as he is also preparing for his Broadway debut in the stage adaptation of Stephen King's acclaimed novel "Misery", which opens this autumn.
Allen is planning to recast Willis' role in time to keep production on schedule.
His upcoming film has a star-studded cast, which includes Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart, Parker Posey and Jesse Eisenberg, among others.
