“Die Hard” is one of the more beloved action franchises out there, and it doesn’t look like it is going away just yet.
In a new statement by 20th Century Fox, it was announced this week that a new installment is coming featuring Bruce Willis entitled “A Good Day to Die Hard” — and here is the official statement:
“Since the first Die Hard in 1988, John McClane has found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the skills and attitude to always be the last man standing, making him enemy number one for terrorists the world over.
“Now, McClane faces his greatest challenge ever, this time on an international stage, when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son McClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy.”
The fourth installment of the franchise (entitled “Live Free or Die Hard”) ended up making $380 million around the world — which was more than three times its production when it was released in June 2007. It co-starred Justin Long, and also featured a slightly tamer McClane with a PG-13 rating.
Do you think the world needs more “Die Hard” moving forward?
