Even though Face/Off runs it a close second, Die Hard will always be my favourite action film of all time and even though the last sequel was an abomination and an insult to the original classic, I still hope that any planned further sequels will live up to my expectations of a film worthy of its title.
Die Hard 6 was recently announced as a sort of prequel/sequel with a young John McClane and a supposed mere cameo from Bruce Willis set in the now.
How that was going to work and appeal to fans is anyone’s guess as Willis is the franchise and he surely needs a hit just as bad as John McClane needs another good/bad day!
Returning director Len Wiseman who sat in the chair for the decent Live Free or Die Hard has confirmed that Willis will be in the new film much more than first thought.
“He will be more present than that. This character of course is modern day and the origin story if you can call it that has ramifications on present day McClane. What it’s not is it’s not a cameo bookend scenario. It’s a prequel/sequel hybrid that I really haven’t seen before and is incredibly different.”
So there you have it…..Looper goes all Die Hard on us!……..Lets all wait and see!
