This is the most epic news we have received all week. 20th Century Fox only recently announced plans to produce another Die Hard movie – Die Hard 6. You may want to wait before you burst with excitement. Why? As hard as it is for us to imagine, Die Hard 6 is both a prequel and a sequel. According to reports, Die Hard 6 will be a story revolving around the origins. It will be set in year 1979. Most of the action will is set in New York City where you should be able to see John McClane as a rookie cop.
Die Hard 6 will be directed by Len Wiseman (Director of Live Free or Die Hard aka Die Hard 4) and Lorenzo di Bonaventura is the producer. Reports suggest that Bonaventura already has a script which they will try and adapt to the Die Hard storyline. Nothing new, it’s been done with Die Hard with a Vengeance. This is as far as the reports go, but we are sure that Die Hard 6 will be an amazing movie – haven’t all the others? It will be interesting to see how the elements of past and the present are mixed in. Hopefully, the director will do a splendid job with that.
Bruce Willis has been kept in the loop through the development of this project and will very much be involved in Die Hard 6 – Why wouldn’t he? He’s the man. Of course, McClane will appear in the modern-day story while his younger 1979-self, will be played by another actor. We are not certain exactly who will receive that honor at the moment, but we’ll keep you updated on that. If you have kept tabs on the Die Hard franchise, you would know that it is a moneymaker for Fox. Globally, the franchise has grossed over $1.4 billion. We can’t wait to find out more details about Die Hard 6, especially the release date. What we need you to do, is venture guesses as to who exactly will play the young John McClane. *Scream* DIE HARD.You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ for more updates.
