The cunningly-titled fifth Die Hard movie A Good Day to Die Hard hasn't even been released yet, but series star Bruce Willis has already told fans to expect a sixth outing for the grizzled lawman John McClane. I trust you’ll excuse us a brief “yippee-ki-yay”.
Willis appeared on BBC1’s early evening magazine programme The One Show last night to plug AGDtDH and was asked by host Alex Jones if viewers can expect a sixth Die Hard film. He smiled, looked rather pleased with himself and responded with one word: “Yes.”
While it’s too early to guess at whether the proposed sixth film will actually go ahead or not (A Good Day to Die Hard’s box office receipts will decide that), Twentieth Century Fox certainly seems keen on the Die Hard franchise at the moment, having just marked the series’ 25th birthday by unveiling a huge mural of Willis in character as John McClane on its studio lot in LA.
So, while there’s no plot to chew over, why don’t we busy ourselves by speculating about potential titles for the sequel? These are the domain names to buy up now if you want to annoy Fox, kids!
