Die Hard 6 on the horizon?

Die Hard is one of five films first seen on screens back in 1988.

The popular American action series directed by John McTiernan and written by Steven E. de Souza and Jeb Stuart follows the life of off-duty New York City Police Department officer John McClane (Bruce Willis).

Die Hard 6

Die Hard 6 to be both origin story and sequel! There could be a first travel back and destroy what made the original film so great, the shadowy cabal of directors, writers, and producers who have devoted themselves to transforming John McTiernan’s 1988 classic into a cavalcade of cartoon nonsense have hatched their most devious scheme to date.

Fronted by Live Free Or Die Hard director Len Wiseman, and abetted by number one Die Hard defiler Bruce Willis, the team has launched a truly, audaciously bad idea for the already inherently awful idea of making a Die Hard 6: making the movie a prequel film.

The movie is still in early talks, but the apparent plan is to open and close the film with scenes of Willis as a now permanently sleepy-eyed John McClane, providing the series’ last remaining fan—veterinarian Larry Squabdale, of Hasslefack, New Jersey—with the yipee-ki-yay’s and mother fucking he so desperately craves.

But in between those grumbly bookends, the film will devote most of its run time to McClane’s career as a cop in “gritty” 1979 New York, all the better to show “how he became a die hard kind of guy.” This, even though the single most important aspect of the original Die Hard’s greatness—outside of Willis’ long-consumed stores of smirking, smarmy charm—was the idea that John McClane was just a regular cop, desperately improvising in an impossible situation.

But whatever, that sort of thinking stopped mattering three Die Hards ago. Now, we can look forward to some new young actor squinting his way through trips to the explosion factor and deploying his best Bruce Willis impression to crack wise at a bunch of winking hints to the original film. “Boy, it sure would suck to get that in my feet,” he’ll quip, staring at a not-yet-broken window. “Ho Ho Ho? Why Santa, that’s a heck of a line!” “Aw, geeze, my gun is stuck to my back, why does this always happen?” We don’t know, young actor pretending to be Bruce Willis in our hypothetical Die Hard situation.

We’ll keep you posted as we hear more…
