The social experiment of how long can Bruce Willis keep this up continues.

Not sure A Good Day to Die Hard made enough dough for Fox to cough up Die Hard 6. But like any development deal, commissioning a screenwriter is the cheapest part of the process. It doesn't mean a thing. Even for a brand-name as tired as this.

The studio pegged Ben Trebilcook (currently penning a "videogame-themed actioner" Knockout) for Die Hardest. Yes for John McClane's sixth, let that settle in for a moment his sixth, case of being the right guy in the wrong place at the wrong time is called Die Hardest. This time the mayhem goes from New York to predominantly Tokyo. If the Japanese thought Godzilla and Mothra were bad, wait till they meet McClane?

I just realize that will be a line of dialogue, won't it?

Collider wrote:‘Die Hard 6’: Could Len Wiseman Return to Direct a Prequel Story?

This might be a good day for this idea to die hard … with a vengeance. There have been rumors circling about a Die Hard 6 movie for awhile, but it seems to have recently picked up a little more steam. Bruce Willis’ John McClane may well ride again in a prequel story that could have Willis splitting screen time with a younger version of his legendary character.

According to Deadline, Fox is in the process of making a deal with Len Wiseman (director of Live Free Or Die Hard) to return to the franchise with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. The two are supposedly looking for a screenwriter who can make the story into a prequel that will keep Willis in the works. The main action, though, would take place in 1979, where McClane was a gritty New York cop, and the plot would chart the origin of his commitment to dying hard.

If you think this sounds like a terrible idea, you are not alone (and it sounds more like a reboot than a sequel, for what it’s worth). Willis has reportedly been kept in the loop throughout this process, since he and di Bonaventura have a close relationship. Fox is hoping di Bonaventura can raise another tent pole for them with the project, but regardless, another Die Hard film is pretty likely to make a lot of money. 2007’s Live Free or Die Hard grossed $383 million worldwide, while John Moore’s A Good Day To Die Hard garnered just a bit more than $300 million (despite being panned).

There are a lot of great ways that a new Die Hard movie could be approached, and if di Bonaventura and Wiseman find the right screenwriter, something good could come of it. But it could also go very wrong.

WTF?! just make it a proper sequel and just end it there, then in the near future make your crappy reboot.

Die Hard 6, no sidekicks, no pg-13 rating, Willis back to his old self again and a new location!
