In a sixth and possibly final adventure of the great action series, it looks like Detective John McClane is heading to Tokyo for DIE HARDEST!
News just in action fans!!
Everyone’s favourite New York detective John McClane played with always the right mix of world-weariness and daring-do by the incomparable Bruce Willis will return for a sixth movie which may very well be the last in the beloved Die Hard action series.
According to the recent announcement, the new film has already got a title – DIE HARDEST – and a location – Tokyo. So let’s hope writer Ben Trebilcook builds on the great final shot of the last movie A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD and re-teams dad John with sassy daughter Lucy (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and the perfect foil of a heroic son Jack (Jai Courtney) to deliver the full-on action goods for a not-to-be-missed finale.
What an amazing journey it will make to give a last hurrah for a character that first appeared way back in 1988 in director John McTiernan’s iconic (and much imitated) Die Hard. Followed swiftly by director Renny Harlin’s 1990 sequel and then the third movie in 1995 directed again by a returning McTiernan. With a break of 12 years before McClane came back in director Len Wiseman’s fab 2007 movie and the series’ fourth instalment and then another 5 years until this year’s fifth movie directed by John Moore.
Look forward to seeing you again soon, John!
