Bruce Willis filming fifth “Die Hard” in Puerto Rico?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Yippee kai yay, mother … well, you get the idea.

A fifth “Die Hard” film has been rumored for some time now, with Bruce Willis going so far as to admit during interviews for “Red” that he’s excited about jumping back into the role of super-cop John McClane for what should be the final installment in the action franchise. After eliminating “exceptional” thieves, military conspirators, revenge-seeking thugs, and cyber-terrorists, Willis has suggested that the next “Die Hard” would have to step up its game and take the threat to a global level. Because McClane has saved buildings, airports and cities. The evolution of the game has to put the planet at stake, right?

Well, a story breaking today at Latino Review suggests that they’ll be filming “Die Hard 5” in an exotic international locale, at the very least.

The Puerto Rican newspaper Primera Hora is confirming that parts of the sequel will be filmed in Puerto Rico in 2011. The announcement is credited to Gustavo Rivera Aparicio, general manager of 20th Century Fox’s Puerto Rico offices. Latino Review says the announcement was made jointly with the Puerto Rico Film Commission. [UPDATE: Collider is now reporting that Fox says this rumor is false, and the newspaper story is incorrect. We’re still digging. More info once we get it.]

Considering Willis’ schedule, a fifth “Die Hard” certainly is possible. He’s expected to move right into “Looper” for Rian Johnson, while IMDB has him tentatively attached to a drama titled “Ten.” He’s also rumored to have a beefier role in Sylvester Stallone’s “Expendables” sequel, but that’s still in the developmental stage.

So what do you think? Do you want more adventures with John McClane? Did the franchise jump the shark with “Live Free or Die Hard,” or are there credible avenues left to explore with this Energizer Bunny of a law enforcer? Let us know.
