    EXCLUSIVE: As Hans Gruber, his brother Simon and several other super villains can attest, it is hard to kill NYPD cop John McClane, despite that underwhelming last film. Fox is making a deal for Live Free Or Die Hard helmer Len Wiseman to return and develop with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura a sixth installment of Die Hard, the venerable action series that overnight transformed Bruce Willis from a TV to a movie star back in 1988. All of this is early, but they are referring to this as Die Hard Year One and I’m told that Wiseman and di Bonaventura are now looking for a screenwriter to script a reinvention of the venerable action series, one that is sort of a prequel while still leaving room for Willis to play McClane as well. Basically, he’ll bookend a story line that will be set much of the action in 1979, when McClane was a cop in gritty New York City and showing how he became a die hard kind of guy.

    Got an idea.

    Hans Gruber goes back in time to kill McClane's mother before she is born.

    Boom. Million dollar idea right there. :hat:

    Not interested, Die Hard 1, 2 & 3 were great, no need for more, especially with today's way of making a movie, all action and cgi and no interesting plot/character development.

    I'm down with this as long as I don't have to be the one to tell Karl that his brother is dead.

    Fuck you Hollywood. You've now just officially killed the Die Hard franchise.

    Actually it should of ended before the train wrecks known as "Live Free And Die Hard" and "A Good Day To Die Hard" came out.

    There already was a prequel...it was called Commando...staring Arnold and Samantha Micelli.. When Swatzenegger didn't want to do what was to become Die Hard due to him working on Predator, the movie was re formulated to suit Bruce Willis and the rest is yippee Kai aye motha fucker.

    Why not do a prequel on the villains and put that Malifiecent spin on it where they are actually good people just trying to steal money back for their family that was robbed by the Japanessse during the world war 2

    Bam! That's a story I want to see, the irony that McLain kills them and they are trying to avenge their family would be great

    I should just start this script who would want to see this?!

    I'll watch it, but probably not in theater. It has to be better than the endles rebooting of shitty comic book movies.

    On a side note, the character of John McClane was originally Joe Leland in Nothing Lasts Forever, the 1979 novel Die Hard was based on, and the character was also played by Frank Sinatra in the film The Detective. Great book. Originally written as a WWII fighter ace and retired cop who goes to visit his divorced daughter and grandkids in Los Angeles on Christmas. Much darker than Die Hard.

    The only thing that won't Die Hard is this franchise.
