with MTV on the COP OUT press junket
By Dave Campbell | February 23, 2010
I wasn’t what you would call a fan of Live Free or Die Hard (Die Hard 4), so the news of a 5th installment doesn’t have me filled with anticipation. Making everyone wait for the unrated “R” cut of Live Free or Die Hard on DVD/Blur-ray was also a slap in the face to fans.
At the recent press junket for Cop Out it now seems that Bruce has confirmed that he will return for another John McClane Yippee-ki-yay.
Mr. Willis had this to say when he spoke to MTV:
It’s all an in-process thing at this point, with no hard details decided upon. Willis will obviously be involved since there can be no “Die Hard” without John McClane, and he’s already got a few ideas.
“I would hire Len Wiseman right now,” he said, referring to the director the well-received fourth chapter in the series, 2007 release “Live Free or Die Hard.” He also has an idea of the scope of the next movie, a pretty obvious next step for a series which has gone from “trapped in a building” to “trapped in an airport” to “trapped in New York City” to, most recently, “trapped by the Internet.” So what’s next?
“Well it’s got to go worldwide,” Willis concluded. “That would be my contribution to [the next movie].”
