Yippee Ki Yay, another Die Hard themed movie is headed into production. Deadline reports that Universal Pictures has picked up Speeding Bullet, based on a pitch by Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer. The project is described as "a throwback to the Die Hard-esque 90s buddy cop movie" and was also pursued by Paramount. It will be produced by KatzSmith Productions partners Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg.

This is the second similar movie in development in Hollywood. Last week Sony bought White House Down, a spec by Amazing Spider-Man scribe James Vanderbilt, which is being described "as Die Hard in the White House."  I love the concept of Die Hard, so I will be happy to see this movie. Casting is everything on these pictures--Bruce Willis really made the Die Hard films. 

Do you like the idea of Hollywood trying to recreate the Die Hard magic?
