Bruce Willis has revealed that plans for a sixth Die Hard movie are moving ahead and that a script has been written for the film.
The actor confirmed the news during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where he was busy promoting his upcoming Death Wish remake, which looks insane.
Not that Fallon was all that interested in Willis’ latest film, with the late-night host opting to broach a familiar subject with the actor: Die Hard.
After highlighting the fact that Die Hard had just turned 30, Fallon asked whether there would be a sixth outing for McClane.
“I’m about to wing out to California to see what the script looks like,” Willis said. “So yeah, I think so.”
That’s about as close as you are going to get to an enthusiastic response from Brucey.
A sixth Die Hard film has been in the offing for much of the past few years, with rumours suggesting that the next instalment would serve as a sequel/prequel hybrid.
The idea was to create a story that switched between the past and present, featuring Willis as the present day McClane and another, more mobile, actor as McClane in his younger days as a cop.
Quite how that would work is unclear, but the idea wasn’t particularly well received.
Of course, there’s still time for Willis to get cold feet about the whole thing but given some of the underwhelming projects he’s been attached to in recent times, that doesn’t look likely.
Yippee Ki-yay! It’s The Die Hard Drinking Game!
