In February Bruce Willis said that a Die Hard 5 was on the cards and it may film next year. Things have been silent since then, but it appears 20th Century Fox are indeed moving ahead with a sequel as they’ve hired Hitman and X-Men Origins: Wolverine writer Skip Woods to pen the screenplay.
During the rounds for Cop Out Willis said that the next outing has “got to go worldwide”. The original had Willis trapped in a skyscraper. Die Hard 2 took place in an airport. Die Hard with a Vengeance had Willis team up with Samuel L. Jackson and follow a string of deadly clues around New York City. Finally, in Live Free or Die Hard McClane had to defend the United States from some highly skilled hackers. It makes sense that the next one would go global.
Willis also mentioned that he’d like Live Free director Len Wiseman to return, so we’ll have to see if that happens.
