The fifth Die Hard film, A Good Day To Die Hard, got terrible reviews and was a medium-sized success in the United States. It seemed like American audiences didn’t really care about the Russian exploits of John McClane (Bruce Willis) his son, played by Jai Courtney. Or it was just a bad movie. Either way, that was not the case everywhere else in the world. The film was a success overseas, grossing almost $250 million internationally and pushing 20th Century Fox to move ahead with another installment.
We now have some news on the next installment of the Die Hard franchise. Its working title is Die Hardest and the current idea takes place primarily in Tokyo. The first script is being written by British writer Ben Trebilcook, who admitted Bruce Willis and other members of the team have yet to sign off, so all of this might go away. Read more below.
Update: Screen Crush reports that this is untrue through various sources within Fox; one says “there is no truth to this whatsoever.”
