Anyone up for a fifth Die Hard movie? According to Bruce Willis, Die Hard 5 could actually happen. I'm a huge fan of the Die Hard films, however I wasn't really sold on the fourth film, it just went a little too over the top, even for John McClane. But I'm definitely down to see McClane kick some more ass in a new film as long as it's good. In a recent interview with MTV Willis reveals the following,
I think we're going to do a Die Hard 5 next year. The John McClane that exists is only in film and in people's minds. And it continues to grow, that mythology continues to grow.
The film is currently in very early stages of development. Who knows if a script is even being written at this point it could just be ideas being thrown out into the wind. Willis says that he'll hire Len Wiseman right now to direct it if he could. If you don't already know, Wiseman directed the most recent Die Hard film, so I can't really be crazy excited about the idea. The Die Hard films have gone from a building, to an airport, to New York City, to the Internet, so where do they take McClane from there?
Well it's got to go worldwide. That would be my contribution to [the next movie].
So it would be an international Die Hard thriller. Now if they decided to do another one after worldwide, I assume that would take McClain to space, and he would have to battle aliens from the other side of the Universe!
I feel there is one more film, one more adventure that John McClane could fulfill. There needs to be a film to just close out the the franchise, a thank you and goodbye letter to all of the fans.
What you you think?
