“Die Hard 5” is in the works
“Die Hard” lives again to see another day.
“Hitman” screenwriter Skip Woods is in talks with Fox to pen the next installment of Bruce Willis’ blue-collar protagonist John McClane. The plot is being kept under wraps.
Woods has a reputation for co-writing several action and superhero projects, i.e. “Swordfish,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and the upcoming “The A-Team,” per The Hollywood Reporter.
Collectively, the “Die Hard” franchise has generated $1.13 billion at the global box office. The film’s previous sequel, “Live Free or Die Hard” arrived in theaters 12 years after its third chapter making $383.5 million worldwide.
Upcoming Willis’ projects include Sylvester’s Stallone’s “The Expendables” – in which there’s a scene between the two ‘80s action titans and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger – as well as Summit’s action film “Red.”
